Reinstall DirectX EZ

Reinstall DirectX EZ 6.18

Searches for common errors of DirectX and attempts to fix them

Scans the PC and identifies the errors caused by the DirectX and attempts to fix them. Installs the DirectX libraries as well. Supports many DirectX versions but focuses on the most common ones used nowadays (DirectX 9.0c, DirectX 10, and DirectX 12).

DirectX is an important component of the Windows systems, as it enhances the multimedia capabilities of your PC and facilitates playing sophisticated games or performing intricate video processing tasks. That’s why when the DirectX files from your computer get corrupted or damaged, serious system failures and errors may occur, especially when you try to play some games or perform various multimedia tasks. Reinstalling DirectX manually often doesn’t solve these issues and many resort to drastic measures like the complete reinstallation of the Windows OS. The “Reinstall DirectX EZ” application offers a simpler, faster and more convenient way of fixing DirectX errors.

“Reinstall DirectX EZ” is a neat and lightweight application that has a very simple interface. Besides repairing a DirectX installation, it also lets easily back up all the DirectX data installed on your system. Restoring DirectX after that is just as easy. Furthermore, the application lets you view some basic system information.

A feature that I personally like a lot about this application is the possibility to roll back to a lower DirectX version, which makes it possible to play older games on the latest Windows systems without having to deal with the well-known decreased game performance issues.

As you can see, this tool can be very useful, and not just for those who really care about keeping their DirectX installation clean, but for anyone.
