I have gone to the control panel and checked the Legacy Componets the drop down and checked Direct play but after trying Photoshop and get the you dont have directx program which I downloaded its Directx 12 Igo back to see that Legacy Componets and the direct play are both back unchecked .If someone can give me a clue I can take it from there. If there is any other info I missed you need please let me know and i will send it . I love this program and would like to keep things working if I have missed something please help. Thank you.
