Q) How can I determine what version of DirectX is running on my computer?

  • A) You can use the DirectX Diagnostic Tool to find out what version you have.


Sports Sounds Pro requires that DirectX 8.0 or greater be installed. To use the diagnostic too follow the steps outlined below:

1. Click Start, point to Find, and then Click Files or Folders..

2. In the Named box, type dxdiag.exe, and then click Find Now.

3. In the list of found files, double-click the Dxdiag.exe file.

4. On the System tab, note the version of DirectX displayed on the DirectX Version line.

5. When you are finished checking the file version, click Exit.

If the Dxdiag.exe file is not listed in the list of files found, you have a version of DirectX earlier than 3.0. Microsoft recommends that you download and install the current version of DirectX.
