Display adapter WDDM 1.0

I want to upgrade three Dell Inspiron 530S workstations from XP to Windows 8.1.  The requirements say the display adapter must be
DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher drive.
I confirmed DirectX9 using the dxdiag program, but I'm not sure about the WDDM driver.
Anyone know how I can confirm WDDM 1.0 on the display adapter?

Well you are running XP...my mistake, that's why you can't see the WDDM version since it didn't exist for XP

Ok from checking the Dell site for the drivers(http://www.dell.com/support/drivers/us/en/19/product/inspiron-530s) for that model I see they have Vista(32/64 bit) drivers - those are WDDM 1.0 drivers...so that usually is a good enough confirmation that the card is WDDM 1.0 compatible...so I think you should be ok

Note there are no Windows 7/8/8.1 drivers for that model on the Dell site but since its an Intel onboard graphics card it will usually work with the Microsoft driver in any case...
When you run dxdiag click into the Display section and it shows the WDDM version on that page...did you not see that? See my attachment for reference
