I have Just Cause 2 installed on Windows XP. I also install DirectX10 on it. So the only thing I need is a new EXE that don't ask for Windows XP. Do you know were can I find one?

I'm not sure how you think you installed DX 10 on XP, but you didn't. The highest DX that you can run on XP is 9.

@Domingo - I am aware of it and I am also aware that is it incredibly buggy and unsupported. Because of this, there is no way of ruling it out as a problem for any issues you encounter. Maybe you should upgrade before... – MDMarra May 9 '10 at 16:43
Thanks! at last one good asnwer – Domingo May 9 '10 at 16:56

Windows XP can only run up to Direct X 9. You would need windows vista or higher to run a DirectX 10 application.

The only way you could get it to work is to set the application to run in DirectX 9 mode. This will vary on the application though and not always possible. It might be time to upgrade your OS.

@Domingo I will not endorse cracked versions of software. I gave you the official answer on why this will not work. If this is about finding cracked software, then I will close this question immediately. – Troggy May 9 '10 at 16:42
it's a gaming question and should've been closed immediately anyway. :) – quack quixote May 9 '10 at 16:52
