DirectX Version Checker is a simple, neat, and small application created with a single purpose: to help you quickly find out data about the DirectX version installed on your system. It will display not only the DirectX version, but also some additional data, including the DirectShow Filters, the DirectInput Devices, the DirectX Debug Levels, and the installed video and audio compressors.
DirectX Version Checker is very small, neat, and lightweight. It’s an extremely simple application that anyone can use. Its straightforward interface can be used even by beginners.
Simplicity and ease-of-use are not its only advantages. It is also accurate regarding the data it retrieves and displays.

The fact that this tiny application is both precise and easy-to-use still makes it a decent alternative to this aforementioned method, even on newer system. Plus, it displays the DirectX data in a tidier, better organized manner. It’s also free, so using it won’t cost you a thing.
