Don't know if it with all the rushed driver updates for Windows 10, but now I get this error when I try to start RPG Maker VX Ace on my desktop.:


DirextX 8.0 (or higher) not found.


I checked my system, and I have DirectX 11.0 installed.

Try to reinstall it, then. Something might have been misplaced in the registry or something.

Some games (especially older games) do not use a true installer for DX, but simply copy files. When that happens, you get some older files mixed up in your DX-Installation and need to run the installer again.


Haven't heard this happening for several years however, it was mostly a problem during the times of DX7 to DX9.

Maybe Its Because You Need to Install DirectX 8.0?

Install it and It Works.

Backup tip: If you don't want to back up your whole project every day, at least back up everything *except* your Image and Audio folders, which you can do weekly/as needed/etc.
