What's your operating system? Because Microsoft Update readily supplies it through it's update service for Windows 2000 and XP.

You can download it here: http://www.filehippo.com/download_directx/ just click download latest version.

Though if you're running Windows Vista or 7 you don't need to download directX 9 seeing as they run directX 10 or greater.

I believe you do need DX9 to run games without DX10 support, since DX10 is a complete rewrite of DX9 and isn't backwards compatible. I could be completely wrong, though.
Doctors Without Borders: one of the few charity groups you can rely on to actually do real good in the world.

"The trouble with fighting for human freedom is that one spends most of one's time defending scoundrels. For it is against scoundrels that oppressive laws are first aimed, and oppression must be stopped at the beginning if it is to be stopped at all." - H. L. Mencken, unsourced

"There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there always has been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'"- Isaac Asimov, Column in Newsweek (21 January 1980) [source]

Considering that:
  • DirectX 11 comes with 7 (or upgrading it on Vista).
  • DirectX 10 comes with Vista.
  • DirectX 9.0c comes with XP SP2 or later.
If you're either using 98, ME or 2000 (whatever edition/SP), here you can find the official DirectX 9.0c download. Which is the latest build.

Spoiler:
According to the official site, the supported operating systems are: Windows 2000; Windows 2000 Advanced Server; Windows 2000 Professional Edition ; Windows 2000 Server; Windows 2000 Service Pack 2; Windows 2000 Service Pack 3; Windows 2000 Service Pack 4; Windows 98; Windows 98 Second Edition; Windows ME; Windows Server 2003; Windows XP; Windows XP Home Edition ; Windows XP Media Center Edition; Windows XP Professional Edition ; Windows XP Service Pack 1

If you want to know what DirectX version is currently installed: Start > Run, then type"dxdiag" (without quotes), and press Enter/click OK.

You will have to go to update.microsoft.com to go get it, though. Or click the official link that the poster above you posted.

From experience, it seems moreso that DX10 is only partially backwards compatible (because some of the core stuff may still be the same from DX9 to DX10 and DX11), which would explain the hit-or-miss stuff with running software that will run in an XP environment on Vista or 7.

Go to Start<Run, then type "dxdiag". Then hit enter. Somewhere on that first page, it will tell you your DirectX version.

You should be good to go... but if you have issues installing it, try uninstalling it and reinstalling it. Hopefully someone else will help you if that happens, because I don't have the time to type up what to do right now.

FYI, it was written into one of my previous posts.

Then you don't need to download, install or reinstall anything.
