What is DirectX 9?
Microsoft DirectX (all versions) is a set of application program interfaces that allows programmers to code for hardware devices without previously knowing which hardware will actually reside on any given machine. The DirectX program does this by using a middle-man interpreter that interprets generalized commands into commands tailored for the hardware that is installed on the machine that the application is running on. Each new version of DirectX adds to the library of interfaces that the translator can translate to.

it is difficult to give a precise answer in a couple of words: the directx libraries are huge. However, the idea is that these libraries expose an api (a set of instructions) …that allow game programmers to easily develop software. For example they don't have to deal with the particular aspects of each video card: that is done by directX and by the drivers. What kind of functionality directX expose: for ex. you have an image and you need to move it. Passing appropriate parameters, directX will do that for you. Also there are implementations for sound, etc. This is what one can do with directX. It is the bread and butter for game programmers that target Microsoft platforms. Make no mistake though: you don't get to do something till you spend some time studying.
On your start menu, click run Then, in the run box, type Dxdiag The last line on the bottom will tell you.
DirectX is a part of the Microsoft Windows operating system. It is a collection of application programming interfaces (API) that enable programmers to more easily make use of …modern computers' multimedia capabilities. By standardizing applications' interfacing with the computers sound, video and other multimedia subsytems, DirectX reduces the amount of code required for these applications to do their thing. DirectX is the primary interface used by modern PC games to access the multimedia subsystems in the PC.. A collection of application programming interfaces (APIs) for handling tasks related to multimedia, especially game programming and video, on Microsoft platforms. Originally, the names of these APIs all began with Direct, such as Direct3D, DirectDraw, DirectMusic, DirectPlay, DirectSound, and so forth. DirectX, then, was the generic term for all of these Direct-something APIs, and that term became the name of the collection..
There is no ways to uninstall DirectX, it is integrated as a part of graphical sub-system of the Microsoft's operation systems. Officially, the way to uninstall DirectX is to …either use System Restore to roll back to the time when you still did not have this version of DirectX on your system, or to reinstall your system and then not install DirectX 9. Many third party uninstallers are also available but most of them are buggy, if you use one, use it carefully.

even lower... I think its requires Dx7
DirectX 10 is the newest standard.
Technically yes, although the performance is quite bad.

just download the program called KMDXC(Just Google it). After downloading select directx 10 and click patch.

In Windows Vista
Yes. Windows Vista includes DirectX 9.
When a person is gaming (ie. World of Warcraft, Far Cry 3, Dead Space 1, 2, or 3) it seems that Windows DirectX 9 works better than the current DirectX software out today. You… get slightly better performance using DirectX 9 which is important to PC gaming. Also, there have been many reported crashes on such games as Far Cry 3 when running with the current DirectX software today. DirectX 9 doesn't have as many crash reports.
