Where can I download DirectX 9.0b?

Microsoft DirectX 9.0 for home users will update your current version of DirectX – the core Windows technology that drives high-speed multimedia and games on the PC.

Typically, any title that uses DirectX will install the version of DirectX it requires in order to run. Therefore, you generally should not need to download DirectX 9.0 in order to get your programs to run.

That said, it does not hurt to install DirectX 9.0. Some of the new functionality built into DirectX 9.0 may even enhance the quality and performance of your existing titles.

Additionally, many game demos do not come with DirectX, so you may need to install DirectX 9.0 if you plan to play the latest demos.

DirectX 9.0b End-User Runtime (10kb-16.6mb) – Use this setup if you’re connected to the Internet when installing DirectX.

DirectX 9.0b Redistributable for Software Developers – Multilingual (Supported on Windows 2000, Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows XP) (32.5mb) – The DirectX 9.0b Redist is recommended for those user that do not have internet connection during installation. Use this setup if you want to download the DirectX pack and save it for future installations. You’ll need to extract the necessary files from this big pack.

Note: You can customize the way DirectX works by running the command

dxdiag.exe

from the Run menu.
