Today I found my old CD of Need For Speed Most Wanted 2012 and decided to install the game on my Windows 10 64 bit. The CD is a bit scratched but anyhow the installation has been completed within few minutes. After the installation, I launched the game and it didn’t launch. Instead I got an error stating that d3dcompiler_43.dll is missing from my computer and that I have to reinstall the application to fix this issue. I have reinstalled the NFS, but the issue remained. The reinstallation clearly didn’t help me at all. Since the game is pretty old, I haven’t found any relevant tutorial about how to fix d3dcompiler_43.dll is missing error in NFS Most Wanted 2012 on Windows 10. I started to experiment myself based on things that I’ve read on the Internet and eventually I was able to fix this issue. I thought it might be helpful to share this guide with you.
