Q: I installed a game correctly, but when I click the icon to play the game I get this message: Needs DirectX 7.0 or later. What should I do?

A: DirectX is a set of tools and services Microsoft Windows provides for games and other demanding multimedia applications.

DirectX comes with all current versions of Windows, but some games require a newer version. You should be able to find a copy on the game's installation disc. If not, download the latest version for free from Microsoft at www.microsoft.com/directx.
