Last week ago I’ve bought a new Nvidia GeForce 1080 video card and installed all of the drivers and of course I got a bonus game from the retailer which was the Mass Effect: Andromeda – the famous continuation of the Mass Effect game series. Everyone who have played the previous Mass Effect games knows that the game is very cool and I bet everyone have been waiting for the Andromeda for the long time, me inclusively. So, I have activated the game key on Origin and installed the game. Today I’ve tried to launch it and I got system error which was stating the following: “The program can’t start because Binkw32.dll is missing. Please reinstall the program to fix the problem”. After the reinstallation, the error remained and I didn’t know how to fix it. It is unusual to have such errors on the release of the game, especially from BioWare, the famous developers of various popular games. I started to search on various forums what is Binkw32.dll and how to fix it.
Many users suggested to check the system folder and verify if the binkw32.dll file is there. I’ve checked and the file was not there. I found that the file belongs to the Windows operating system and should be located in the system folder by the default. Anyway, the file was not there, somehow it disappeared and that caused the issue. To fix binkw32.dll is missing I simply installed the binkw32.dll file from here: https://fix4dll.com/binkw32_dll and followed the detailed installation instructions provided on the website. After that I was able to launch Mass Effect: Andromeda and play it. Hope this will help you to fix the binkw32.dll is missing error that happens after installing the Mass Effect: Andromeda.
