Microsoft DirectX is a group of technologies designed to make Windows-based computers an ideal platform for running and displaying applications rich in multimedia elements such as full-color graphics, video, 3D animation, and rich audio. DirectX includes security and performance updates, along with many new features across all technologies, which can be accessed by applications using the DirectX APIs.
The latest version of the Microsoft Windows Gaming API delivers Microsoft's powerful new High-Level Shader Language (HLSL) and features its most-advanced suite of design tools for the development of rich multimedia elements such as full-spectrum color graphics, video, 3-D animation and enhanced audio capabilities.
DirectX 9.0 introduces significant improvements across its suite of APIs. DirectSound offers new audio capabilities, DirectShow accelerates video rendering hardware, and Direct3D enhances low-level graphics programmability with new programmable vertex and pixel shader 2.0 models.

[EDIT: underscore and bold added for those who posted later and seem to have missed the main points and download links.
This DX9 error is common with games that require Direct Play to be activated, so there is really no need to stuff
around reinstalling DirectX . I had Direct Play activated from day one Win10, so missed this erroneous error message. ]
DX 11.2 indicates the DX 'Feature level' your graphics card is capable of running.
- It's a common misconception that Win7/8/8.1 has only DX 11, and Win10 has only DX12.
Win7/8/8.1/10 all have of DX - 9,10 and 11.
- The following is a list of the Direct X .dll's you will have when the files are up to date.
Go to the Windows / System 32 folder, (and SysWOW64 if you have 64bit).
They are in alphabetical order and will start with d3dx9 - 24 > 43 . Then d3dx10 - 33 > 43 & finally d3dx11 - 42 > 43.
There should also be - d3d9, d3d10 and d3d11 (among others).
These come before the D3Dcompilers-33>43+47.
- Win10 currently has only two d3d 12 files. One in System 32,and SysWOW64 .
- There are more DX files, but these are most of the graphics related Direct X .dll's
- When using a 'clean' Windows 10 (7 or 8) install it's advisable to run the DirectX Web Installer to 'update' DX.
Note that the Web Installer only installs 'missing' files and does not overwrite corrupt files as does
the full DX Redist installer.
@ People posting below who are still banging on about DX9.0c ... Read ...
- Another common misconception is that you need to install DX 9.0c to run older DX9 games. Not so.
This version has been superseded by the DX Redist (June 2010) which has all of the DX9.0c files, and more.
This installer is the best option if DirectX files are corrupted.
Download Details - Microsoft Download Center - DirectX Redist (June 2010)
Note - This is a two step process. The installer download unpacks files to a location of your choice.
You then open the folder and find the DXSETP.exe and run that to reinstall DirectX.
Once the reinstall is complete you can delete the folder the files were unpacked to.
- Another reason for DirectX errors is if your graphics processor/accelerator (either Integrated graphics or graphics card)
does not meet the specifications of the game.
- Outdated audio drivers can also cause DirectX errors in some cases.
However.... (If you are using a disk based version of FIFA 07)
FIFA '07 may be a victim of a malware that MS has built into Win10. This game uses SafeDisk copy protection,
which uses a driver titled secdrv.sys which is being blocked by MS.
I'm not sure, but this game may use a version of SafeDisk that does not rely on the secdrv.sys driver.
