I didn't think it was possible to install DX10 on XP? Isn't DX10 only meant for Vista & above?

Anyway, the June10 version of DX9 click here is the latest for XP.

"and through the dx entries it shows direcx 9 22/11/10"

That's because the DX Diagnostics Tool always displays today's date & time. G

DX10 ships with Vista and DX11 with Windows 7 you can get DX10 for Windows XP but it isnt the official Microsoft version

Your gonna have difficulty downgrading Direct X i would suggest running a system restore and restoring prior to the install
