Windows System Error Code 193 is ERROR_BAD_EXE_FORMAT. This probably indicates that part of your DirectX 9 installation is corrupted and needs to be replaced.

DirectX 9 is separate from DirextX 10, which is also separate from 11, which is also separate from 12. Games designed for Direct X9 will not use DirectX 10, because it is a different API. I don't blame you for not realizing this, it is not obvious and it confuses basically everyone -- there are dozens if not hundreds of posts in this very forum that say "I have directX 10 why is it asking me to install directx 9".

What I would recommend is to run DXWEBSETUP:

This is what Inner Space asks you to install if you don't have the DirectX 9 updates (which do not ship with Windows, even Windows 10, and are not rolled into DirectX 10, 11, or 12). Many games require this, and in fact Steam runs it for you in many cases as well.
