4. Download Visual C++ Redistributables
- Download the package.
- Run the setup.
- Follow the instructions and install the Visual c++ Redistributables.
Few users reported that installing Visual C++ Redistributables has fixed DirectX errors. Make sure you install the whole package or specific version.
5. Download the missing .dll files
Few users report that you can fix DirectX errors on Windows 10 simply by downloading the missing .dll files and moving them to WindowsSystem32 or to WindowsSysWOW64 folder.
This solution might not be the safest if you download these missing files from the internet, so keep that in mind. Alternatively, you can copy the missing .dll files from another computer that you use.
Note: Using this solution can lead to potential system instability, so use it at your own risk.
Use a third-party .DLL fixer
You can restore .DLL files if you use a specialized program such as Restoro. The software can download missing system files and restore corrupted ones.
Besides, it can also keep you safe by performing periodic scans and checks to make sure your computer is healthy and unaffected by malware or spyware.
6. Make sure you meet the recommended system requirements
- Open the Windows search bar.
- Type in dxdiag and select it.
- In the System tab, check to see your RAM and CPU model.
- In the Display tab, check to see your GPU model.
I know it’s probably unlikely, but if you’re using an older computer, you might want to check if it meets the minimum system requirements for running DirectX. Here are minimum system requirements for DirectX 12:
- Windows 7 32 bit or 64 bit
- DirectX 12 compatible graphics card
- .NET Framework 4
- 1 GB RAM
- 2 GHz Duo Core CPU
7. Install .NET Framework using the Command Prompt
- Go to the Search, type cmd, and open Command Prompt as Administrator.
- Type the following command and press Enter:
DISM /Online /Enable-Feature /FeatureName:NetFx3 /All /LimitAccess /Source:D:sourcessxs
- Wait for the process to finish.
- Restart your computer.
To install the .NET Framework, you’ll basically need to use the good old DISM (Deployment Image Servicing and Management) service. If DSIM fails, quickly fix it with this step-by-step guide.
However, we’re not going to use the whole tool, but just a part of it that will allow us to install the .NET Framework.
DirectX is an integral part of all Windows operating systems, therefore any DirectX problems can cause your favourite applications to stop working.
