D3d9.0c does not install "instead" of DX11/12, it installs alongside d3d12 in Win10 and co-exists happily.

Put it in a folder and decompress all the files and then run DXSETUP.EXE to make sure it fully installs (dxwebsetup.exe simply runs and quits as soon as it detects > dx9.0c is installed with the message that you "don't need" it because you have a newer version installed...)

YMMV--Toni doesn't get that message with dxwebsetup.exe, but I do... (Hence, when I run DXSETUP.EXE I can actually see 9.0c installing, file by file.) Anyone who enjoys older games should have this version of d3d installed alongside d3d11/12.

DXsetup.png is what you want to see when installing dx9.0c; DXweb.png is what you do *not* want to see when installing...
