It sounds like your system is missing the DirectX runtime components required to run VALORANT. To resolve this, you need to install the DirectX End-User Runtime. Here’s how you can do it: 1. Go to the Microsoft DirectX End-User Runtime Web Installer page: Download DirectX 2. Click the "Download" button to download the installer. 3. Run the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions to install DirectX. After the installation is complete, try launching VALORANT again. If the issue persists, you might want to ensure that your Windows is updated and that your graphics drivers are up to date.

The Microsoft DirectX® End-User Runtime installs a number of runtime libraries from the legacy DirectX SDK for some games that use D3DX9, D3DX10, D3DX11, XAudio 2.7, XInput 1.3, XACT, and/or Managed DirectX 1.1. Note that this package does not modify the DirectX Runtime installed on your Windows OS in any way.
