How to uninstall Direct X 10?

Hi guys

It would appear that DX10 is causing me all kinds of problems in Vista, is there any way of uninstaling it so that I can run DX9c?? Or is there any way I can import the correct .dll files that I need?

nope. Run your app in "compatibility mode". there is no DX9 for vista, merely an interface to translate "DX9 for hardware" to "DX10 for Vista".

From that error it looks like whatever program it is needs direct X 8 ?

It might be worth considering setting up a virtual machine running XP for your older games, or setting up your system to dual boot.
