DX10 isn't a separate download. It's a part of Vista. Install Vista and you get DX10. Updates of DX10 are available as any Vista update when you use Windows Update.Ulf B

No problem! If you install Vista, both DX10 and DX9 will be installed on your pc and they coexist just fine. There is absolute no problem with that. I run Vista and FSX using DX9. I've tested to use DX10 with FSX, but I prefer DX9. Others prefer to run FSX in the DX10 preview mode.Ulf BCore2Duo X6800 3.3GHz4GB RAM Corsair XMS2-8500C5BFG 8800GTX, Creative SB X-FiFSX Acc/SP2, Vista 32
