Wonder if anyone without the issue can search the game file and see which folder it’s usually in.

This will be a 100% issue for all users on the now (unsupported by M$) Windows 7, as julia noted above, a fix is forthcoming.

@captaincrunch Not sure what we’re looking at yet ETA-wise, I hope by the end of the workday so within the next 6ish hours.

@Kitten it’s located in the \windows\system32 folder, but don’t even try. I’ve already put several different version of the .dll in there, but you only get another error message after doing that. Also EAC starts complaining.

EDIT: Thx to Lady Onion, i was able to get the game running anyway. Her version of the DLL worked for me. It’s : 3.4.1.1357. Put that in the system32 or vt2 launcher folder and it will work.

Hey Guys

A quick fix that worked for me was to copy the current xinput1_3.dll in system32 directory and rename the copy xinput1_4.dll

So under C:\Windows\System32\ you’ll have xinput1_3.dll and xinput1_4.dll (which is a copy of xinput1_3.dll).

Loads up fine now.

Thanks. I’ve waited long enough that I don’t mind waiting for the patch though. Just chilling and watching this:

Thanks! That worked!
