Vista includes Dx 10 by default. Updating using the updater from M$ updates *both* as was already stated in the thread earlier.

If you game uses Dx 10 then it will continue to use Dx 10. If it uses Dx 9 then it will continue to use Dx 9.

I tried installing the direct X update and failed due to an error that was ~"a required library wasn't found" or something similiar.

I went through all the microsoft steps to try and fix this and several of the steps were making sure that ~8 DLLS were set to an active state through the command line.

Much to my horror I have found that ~4 of those 8 DLLS are missing.

I am curious if doing the system recovery steps will replace those DLLS for me?
