Question How to test DirectX 10?

I've doenloaded and installed directx 10
When I run dxdiag, it still showing directX 9.0c
Is there any test or way to tell that I 've directx 10 installed?

Thanks very much for your help.

I think what you have downloaded is that file gonig around that claims to unlock DX10 in XP LOL - For starters XP does not support DX10 - this is nothing more than a gadget that allows you to run DX10 games in XP by fooling your games into thinking you have DX10 - by no means will you get any DX10 features ! ;)

DX10 is a VISTA feature and it comes with vista.
