DirectX 11 in Windows Vista

Post by dipu » Fri Nov 13, 2009 10:06 am

Has any 1 updated to DirectX 11 in Windows Vista ? I have recently updated my Vista to DirectX 11. Hope this will help those who wants to play or Benchmark DX11 games on Vista.

You just need to change some registry values to be updated to DX11. http://www.mininova.org/tor/3107075. I have uploaded it here. Run the file with Admin rights.
There will be a platform update performed by Windows Update automatically.

Good luck.

So you get all the DX11 features or just some?

I'd be interested in seeing if tessellation or DirectCompute would work in Vista.

My bad luck DX11 cards are not available in my country yet. I hope you can update your machine and give us some.
