I'm having trouble getting it by searching in the Microsoft download site. I get an update to 9.0c. I also used their FAQ to figure out which version I have, to which they state that my version of windows comes with at least DX10 minimum. This must be because I installed XP SP3?

A link would be nice, but maybe an explanation of how normal folks like me would find it?

I didn't think that there was a 'stand alone' version...I thought it was a Vista only item and the update path was through Vista updates and that 9.0c was the last XP version...but I haven't been paying all that much attention to DX anything in years, so I could have missed something along the way.

You can see you version easily.
Type dxdiag in a run box and press enter. Version # on the bottom of the list

I'm on XP pro Sp3 and my version is 9.0c and I am fully updated per MS.

Mjc is correct, 10 and above are with Vista and 7

That's what I once thought too. It is so.

Someone has spun a version for XP.

Thanks for clarifying. When I installed MPC-HC, it said my DX was old...
