Windows 10 and DirectX 9


Recommended Posts


Firstly forgive my lack of German language.

I have tried using 3D Train Studio on my windows 10 laptop but when I run the program I get a message saying that DirectX can't be found and the program runs slower than it should.

I've looked at the windows/system32 folder and all the DirectX files are there.

Can anyone provide any assistance please?

Thanks in advance.

Hi Graeme,

Welcome to the forum. The message does not say that DirectX is missing, but a graphics card which does support DirectX 9 or newer. So 3D Train Studio falls back to WARP, a Microsoft technology where your CPU computes all 3D graphics (which is slow).

What is the name of your graphics card?

Kind regards,

Further to my ongoing graphics problem I hoping someone can give me a bit of advice to a possible work around. 

Unfortunatly my budget prevents me buying a new computer. 

So my possible work around is to buy a USB external graphic adapter. 

My questions are, would this resolve my graphic problems and can anyone recommend a budget device?

The computer is an “Ergo” laptop

The specs are as follows

Processor: Intel Atom (N570) Dual core @ 1.66GHz

Ram: 2GB

OS: Windows 10 Home 64bit

Display adaptor: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 3150 (Microsoft WDDM 1.0)

I look forward to getting some expert advice.

Thanks in advance
