Direct x update has the same thing in common with Microsoft Net Framework. One version is not backwards compatible with another. The direct x version in windows xp was backwards compatible with version 7 & 8. There is no such luck with direct x 11 in windows 7. Found that out when trying to install Roxio Creator 2011 Pro. Makers of software want users on older operating system to be able to use the software too. Last version of direct x in windows xp was 9.0c. So if the minimum system requirement was xp and later that was the reason for the update. To install Creator I had to install microsoft direct x sdk (June2010) before hand. It had the version 9 components needed so I could install creator. Did it from a direct download from another computer that has broadband access as the update is over 500 mb in size. Might have been a small size file somewhere, but that is what worked for me. Roxie would have done the update itself but this computer doesn't have access to a broadband connection.

Just passed on this information from what I learnt in my experience with windows 7 when I previously used xp
