Issues with Discontinued product. HD Graphics 2000


Im running Adobe Premiere Pro 2019 and Dota 2, from valve. But both of them are not working anymore, and mostly for 2 reasons, Dota 2 and Adobe work only with the Directx11 and not the 12 version. But since my graphic card isnt supported anymore, i cant comeback to the earlier setup or get a newer version. 

Im wondering what would be solution here, can i come back to a windows version, that supports the directx 11 (Windows 10 currently)  or my only option is to upgrade the graphic card?

Thank you for your attention!

Al is correct (if a bit terse). There really is no solution here; Intel HD Graphics 2000 - and all other 2nd gen processors - are simply not supported by Intel with Windows 10 and, as you have seen, the Microsoft compatibility driver is very limited in what it can support. The only solution I see - and only for desktop designs - is to add a graphics card to the system. If you are going to go this route, I recommend that you look for an older NVIDIA card. I have had no luck getting AMD graphics cards to work in these older systems. I am successfully using an MSI version of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 ti card in my desktop system that has 2nd gen Core i7-2600 processor in it.

Hope this helps,
