Installing an earlier DirectX

Guest

I have Vista Ultimate with DirectX 10, but I have such a problem that I need
to install DirectX 9.0c to run some apps. How do I install an earlier
DirectX? I downloaded its setup and installed, but there still remained
version 10.

As far as I know DXDIAG will show the latest version but you can have
multiple older versions also installed for backward compatibility.

Vista includes DirectX 9.0L, which should run what you need to run. If
you're missing some of components (for example, the managed runtime) you
can update them from here:
