I pre-ordered Doom on Steam a long time ago, and just yesterday I found that it was already released for a couple of weeks. I immediately rushed to install the game but was surprised by the steam_api.dll is missing error that I faced immediately after the installation of Doom. Actually I tried to install on my other computer that runs Windows 10 64 bit and got the steam_api64.dll is missing error.

Google led me to few gamers community forums where I found real help and easy solution for steam_api.dll is missing error.
