    Default Windows 8 / DX11

    When starting DDO, the setting in graphics is grayed out and set on dx9. I am not prompted to switch graphics modes.

    I just did a clean install of Windows 8 on a pc. (Only program installed is DDO!)
    When running windows 7 with exact same hardware, DDO ran in DX11.

    Windows is fully updated
    Graphic drivers are fresh from ATI/AMD website.
    Confirmed that nothing is in 'compatibility mode'.
    Made fix to userpreferences file setting displayadapter=1
    DXDiag confirms dx11.
    Ran benchmark utility, works great in dx11 mode.

    Graphics Card: ATI HD5750
    CPU AMD FX-4130 Quad Core
    8GB Ram
    Windows 8 x64
    MSI Motherboard does not have integrated graphics.

    Any ideas on what the problem is and how to fix it?

    Default Fixed

    I finally fixed the problem.

    I downloaded and installed "Microsoft Directx End-User Web Installer"

    Once that was installed, I was prompted to choose directx 11, and it is now working.
