    Has anyone kept track on where DirectX 3D gets it's updates posted? Because, every time I download something related to DirectX, I get audio files and PDF. Seriously, Microsoft? You gonna make it this hard to find it? ( BTW, I searched for this and found nothing in the forums. So, yup.
    Thanks in advanced...

    Actually the DX updates can all be found contained within the latest redistributable found on the Microsoft website. Iirc, it also includes a function to check online for any missing updates when run.

    I'd link it, but it's a pain to navigate with a phone.
    Edit: here's a link: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/search.aspx?q=directx

    Still nothing. Microsoft really made it difficult to find them

    What operating system are you on? Usually you don't need to download anything related to DirectX to use it.

    I see, what are you trying to play, if anything? Or are you just looking to get the latest distributables. If it's a game, what's your graphics card?

    It's the DirectX End-User Runtimes (June 2010). Afaik, there were no updates after that, so running the runtime will get you fully up to date.

    A GameCube game. I need to have DX3D. I don't know about the card, I was able to play these games 5 weeks ago. They ran perfect. I need to know why I need to install it again... :/

    Dolphin discontinued support for 32-bit OSes and DirectX 9 (Vista and higher only).

    It's 64 bit. I use XP on it, but it's a Windows 7.
