    xp shipped with directx 8

    HERE is a search page to download directX 6

    you can install directX 6 and your game should give you the option to use either 9 or 6

    uninstalling direct x 9 could be problem prone as it is part of the system, but you can read through several pages at THIS search page

    DirectX 9.0 is the latest for XP. And you can't install an older version of it because it doesn't work and DirectX9 on XP has compatibility mode with older directx games ;p
