The xinput1_3.dll can be very irritating and it kept on appearing each time I attempted to run The Long Dark. It started when I downloaded some anti-malware tools and had my system scanned. I discovered lots of malware on my system and decided to clean out everything. It was after the cleanup that I started getting the xinput1_3.dll is missing error message. It occurs mainly when I attempt to launch The Long Dark, though it also happens when I want to open some other programs. Because of this xinput1_3.dll is missing error, I lost everything I had saved in single game of The Long Dark. The error message was to the effect that the program couldn’t start because of the xinput1_3.dll and that I had to reinstall it to fix the problem. However, this did not work because the problem persisted even after I reinstalled the program.
After unsuccessfully trying to reinstall The Long Dark, I still couldn’t run the game because of the xinput1_3.dll not found error. I tried to find a solution on the internet as well as from different programs and guides, but I couldn’t get any solution. I tried some YouTube guides and ended up downloading a Trojan. Luckily for me, my antivirus was able to neutralize it. After searching for a while, I finally discovered a solution.
