I am big fan of football in real life, as well I love to play it with my friends on my computer. We’ve had a great evenings playing FIFA 15 and PES 2015. From my experience I preferred PES over FIFA, so we chipped in money and bought the new PES 2016. After the installation I was not able to run the game. I mean I could run the game, but immediately after the screen goes black and then the windows system error appears saying that xinput1_3.dll is missing from my computer and I need to reinstall the application. I’ve reinstalled the game couple of times, but it didn’t help at all. I even went to the store and changed the game CDs, but the error remained.
Definitely the error was not related with the game, but with my computer, to be more precise with my Windows 8 operating system. I was thinking that Microsoft somehow deleted some files in order to promote upgrade to Windows 10. Anyway after spending a night googling for solution I found that many people having xinput1_3.dll is missing error not only in PES 2016, but also in other games and applications. There is no point describing why the xinput1_3.dll is missing error can appear, since there are lots of reasons for that. The most important is the solution for xinput1_3.dll is missing error, which is simpler than I thought. I just had to download xinmput1_3.dll file ( http://fix4dll.com/xinput1_3_dll ) and install it by following the instructions on the website. After that I just rebooted my computer and PES 2016 launched normally, without any errors.
Hope this will help you to fix xinput1_3.dll is missing error in PES 2016. Enjoy the game and don’t forget to share this guide.
