    Getting “DirectX Mode not supported” error message while launch Google Earth on Windows XP

    Whenever I try to start Google Earth application on my PC running on Windows XP, an error message will pop up on the screen saying “DirectX Mode is not supported”. But I could launch the same application without any problem in the beginning. Why is this error happening and how to resolve it?

    Install the latest DirectX 11in the system and see whether it can resolve the problem. If not, uninstall Google Earth from the system and install it again. Drag the mouse cursor to bottom left part of the desktop and press the ‘Start’ button. The start menu will then pop up on the screen from which locate the ‘Settings’ option. After that, place the cursor over that option for bringing up another menu. Navigate through that menu and click the ‘Control Panel’ option. The ‘Control Panel’ window will come up on the desktop after that. Click the icon for ‘Add or Remove Programs’ available in that window. You can then find a list of applications on the screen from which select ‘Google Earth’ option. Press the ‘Remove’ button next to that option and wait until the application is removed. Restart the system afterwards and install the ‘Google Earth’ application again.

    HIII...
    Your Direct X is either not installed or is outdated. A lot of problems are seen these days on DirectX.
    So i want to tell you that DirectX is a tool or software from Microsoft that handles multimedia tasks like gaming, video and flash etc..Since all the websites generally contains these type of objects, thus this tool should be installed on your computer.
    Download the latest DirectX 11 or above(it wud be better to get 11 as its supported by mostly all multimedia softwares)
    Install it and restart the "Google Earth".
    I think the problem would be resolved now!!

    Well mine friend,,

    That's not a lot of big deal..You also know why...

    Lemme explain it in details :

    All Windows XP mostly have Direct x 8.1 but least you should use is 9.0 or for best Performance 11.0

    Direct x 11 has it's own feature of smoothing laggy things and

    It's a great resource for gamers and multimedia users...

    So, Best of Luck Install it from any downloading site like filehippo and ENJOY
