Download DirectX 11 Windows 8 Full
DirectX is a set of components in Windows that allows software, primarily and especially games, to work directly with your video and audio hardware. Games that use DirectX can use multimedia accelerator features built-in to your hardware more efficiently which improves your overall multimedia experience.
DirectX 11.1 is included in Windows 8, Windows RT, and Windows Server 2012. There is no stand-alone update package for DirectX 11.1. You can only install this DirectX version through Windows Update in Windows 8, Windows RT and Windows Server 2012. However, if you want to download the full version of DirectX 11 for Windows 8, you can follow the steps below.
Go to the [Microsoft Download Center] and click on the "Download" button for the "DirectX End-User Runtime" file.
Save the file to your preferred location and then run it as an administrator.
Follow the instructions on the screen to complete the installation.
Restart your computer to apply the changes.
This will install a number of runtime libraries from the legacy DirectX SDK for some games that use D3DX9, D3DX10, D3DX11, XAudio 2.7, XInput 1.3, XACT, and/or Managed DirectX 1.1. Note that this package does not modify the DirectX Runtime installed on your Windows OS in any way.
To check which version of DirectX is installed on your system, you can use the DxDiag tool. To do this, follow these steps:
Press the Windows logo key and R at the same time to open the Run dialog box.
Type "dxdiag" and then press Enter or click OK.
In the DirectX Diagnostic Tool, click the System tab and then look at the "DirectX Version" field.
You should see "DirectX 11" or higher as your DirectX version. If not, you may need to update your Windows OS or your video and audio drivers.
