    Win7 RC / DirectX

    Does Windows 7 RC (build 7100) 64-bit come with DirectX 10/10.1 and all the latest releases already installed, or do you have to download this to get it?

    True, but do I need all the DX updates for older games?

    I'm not sure, i think up to 9.0c all the previously required dx versions could be handled by that. I think with 10 they started from scratch so it might not cover the older requirements. Not sure if you can have both installed. You can always try a game and if it doesn't work then install 9 and see if it meshes, or you can wait for someone that knows the answer.

    In addition to DX11, Win7 already comes w/ DX9.0L (L for Longhorn, and specific to Win7 / Vista for compatibility w/ older games) installed.

    DirectX was designed to be backwards compatible, and if thats still true
    with DX10+, you do not need to install anything else.

    Yeah, same problem I was getting when trying to run Ungine Tropics benchmark. I guess the OS doesn't come preinstalled with some DX .dlls. I used that download I posted in OP and it works.
