Microsoft DirectX® End-User Runtime configures a set of runtime libraries from the old DirectX SDK for one or two games using D3DX9, D3DX10, D3DX11, XAudio 2.7, XInput 1.3 and/or xact, Managed DirectX 1.1. Note that the package type does not affect the DirectX runtime installed on your Windows operating system.
- Microsoft DirectX® is already included in Windows XP SP2, Windows Server 2003 SP1, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8.0, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows and similar servers. This DirectX end-user runtime does not change the version of DirectX, but installs a few additional parallel technologies from the old DirectX music SDK used in some older games. See https://aka.ms/dxsetup for a detailed and optimal explanation.
Note that Desktop Bridge applications using D3DX9, D3DX10, D3DX11, XAudio 2.7, XInput 1.3, or XACT must use the Microsoft.DirectX.x86/Microsoft.DirectX.x64 framework to accompany these older DirectX components – providing side SDKs. Alternatively, the developers will permanently remove these dependencies. See Microsoft documents for more information.
