I first played Call of Duty: WWII, which is also known as COD:WWII a month ago when it was on open beta and never experienced any problem with it. However, when I attempted to launch it on Steam, after the release I got an error message stating that bink2w64.dll cannot be found on the computer and that I should reinstall the game. Luckily, reinstallation on Steam is quite simple and fast, unfortunately, it didn’t fix the problem. At first I thought I had been hacked, but after researching on the internet, I discovered that the bink2w64.dll is missing error is quite common amongst Windows applications and games.
I don’t know how it happened, but I suddenly realized that my bink2w64.dll file was no longer on my system library. Perhaps it was deleted by an antivirus, though I’m not really certain. I discovered that I could fix the bink2w64.dll is missing problem by installing the bink2w64.dll manually. So I downloaded the file from https://fix4dll.com/bink2w64_dll and installed it by following the instructions provided on the website. It’s quite straight forward, all you have to do is to copy the downloaded file and paste it in the appropriate location depending on the type of operating system you’re using. I rebooted my system and was finally able to launch the COD:WWII without experiencing the bink2w64.dll is missing error message.
You might also experience this bink2w64.dll is missing error in other applications, but it shouldn’t be a problem anymore because you can now download and install it manually.
