Few days ago I just bought Metro 2033 as part of the humble bundle deal. I was so excited to play it, anyway when I launched the game I got the error “PhysXLoader.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program” so I took its advice and reinstalled it. That didn’t help me to fix the issue. The Steam support crew advised me to reinstall video card drivers and steam itself, but nothing worked. My friends suggested me to directly install the PhysXLoader.dll library into the game folder, but I couldn’t find the place where I can get it and I didn’t know how to properly install it, but I tried and it worked, so I am about to share the solution for PhysXLoader.dll is missing error.
