Yes this is the latest version. But it wont overwrite the DX10 that is intalled in Vista. This is the latest version of DX9. Depending on which games you are playing they use DX9 not DX10. So that is why the DX is failing. Without knowing which games this error occurs on this is our best measure to try and find a solution.
