Recently I bought the new graphic card Asus GTX 970 Strix edition and as a gift I got two games Tom Clancy’s The Division and Far Cry Primal – both of the games can be redeemed on Uplay. After successfully activating both of the games I tried to launch Far Cry 4 on Uplay but immediately got xlive.dll is missing from your computer error. I had to call to the Uplay support team, but they couldn’t help me with this issue, simply saying that the problem is on my computer and not related with their software. I started to read various forums, but since the game just released today I couldn’t find any relevant information regarding xlive.dll is missing error. However, after watching some tutorials on YouTube and trying them by myself I found one solution that I will share with you.
There are tons of guides that suggest you to call some toll free number or install some dubious software on your computer. All of that is scam and will only harm your computer. I just figured out that xlive.dll is missing error is happening because this system library is missing from my computer and you have two options – one, is to reinstall the operating system, two is to manually install the missing xlive.dll file by yourself. I chose second option and downloaded xlive.dll from http://fix4dll.com/xlive_dll and installed it. The installation process is quite simple, it is just copy paste of the library into the proper place. However, the detailed instruction is kindly provided on the downloading page.
Hope this guide has helped you to fix xlive.dll is missing error in Far Cry Primal.
