Windows 7: Is Win7 SP1 Required/recommended to install DirectX9.0c in windows 7?

22 Jul 2012   #1

Windows 7 Enterprise x64 SP1 Version 6.1 Build 7601
Is Win7 SP1 Required/recommended to install DirectX9.0c in windows 7?

Windows 7 has Directx11 already built in, but to play the games developed with DX9 we need to install DX9.

I've been looking around whether It's recommended or even required in windows7, to have windows Service pack 1 installed or not prior installing DX9, and I found no answer.

this question may sound stupid but when you go to download page of for example, C++ redistributable or .NET framework it says that you need SP1 and all the updates installed, so I'm just gessing whether is this the case for DirectX9 as well?

If you can provide some kind of readme, referece or your experience I'll be thankfull to u

Thank you for your explanation!
