Change directx 11 to 9

Technical Support
I input the variable on the config time ago, now I want to run some test with another video card and directx9 but it seems even if I delete the file, or remove the variable the file is regenerate uppon login.
The Config.wtf file will recreate itself whenever it's deleted. This file stores all of your configuration settings. Deleting it once should remove the SET gxApi "d3d11" line.

You're not using the -d3d11 line in your shortcut, are you? If you're not, you should be good to go.
No I didnt set the shortcut still, even if I delete the file its been recreated with the variable. This is what I am finding so weird.

Ah, that is weird. Try deleting your entire WTF folder and see if that helps out. You'll have to reconfigure addons, but it sounds like something's trying to force that setting.
If you use SET gxAPI "d3d9" in your config.wtf, the changes aren't being saved?

Make sure to run WoW as an administrator, if you aren't already. :)

I would try that later, for the moment I change the settings on a shortcut and add the -dxd9 I still find this bug rather weird.
It usually means that the changes weren't applied because of a permissions issue, Elesya.
