Microsoft DirectX is a group of technologies designed to make Windows-based computers an ideal platform for running and displaying applications rich in multimedia elements such as full-color graphics, video, 3D animation, and rich audio. DirectX 10.0 includes security and performance updates, along with many new features, which can be accessed by applications using the DirectX 10.0 APIs.
Until now DirectX 10 has only been available for Windows Vista operating system. After major out cries from the windows gaming community we have finally dedicated a team to convert this Vista only solution into a version that can be installed on Windows XP SP2 based machines. This update will only work on Windows Genuine Advantage certified copies of Windows XP.
As you probably know already, this is an April fools joke. If you ran it, you don’t have to worry, it doesn’t contain any malware/spyware/virus. Anyway, before you’re losing any hopes about DX10 on XP, I want to tell you that DX10 on XP is indeed possible; at least with a modified DX10 runtime files and 'special' graphic driver. Maybe some day...
