DirectX is a graphics support update for the Windows operating system. This version is essential for gamers and users of professional graphic design software.
DirectX is a collection of application programming interfaces released completely free of charge by Microsoft to support the display of high-quality images or videos. The software is mainly used for users who watch movies or play games.
All modern Windows operating systems include DirectX by default, so you probably never need to install DirectX manually.
However, Microsoft has been released updated versions of DirectX, and installing the latest updates might be the fix to a DirectX issue that you have, such as dsetup.dll errors, or increase performance in your games and graphics programs.
