I began playing Conan Exiles game about a year ago when it was in Early Access and it has never given me any problems, except some bugs and glitches that were fixed during the course of the game development. However, when I tried launching it on steam today, after the release, out of nowhere I got a system error message stating that xapofx1_5.dll is missing and could not be found on my system, and that I should reinstall the application. So, I reinstalled the application, and luckily form me reinstallation on steam only takes a few minutes. However, it didn’t fix the xapofx1_5.dll is missing error. At first I assumed that the game has failed to update to the release build, but after doing some research on the internet, I discovered that the xapofx1_5.dll error is quite common and could occur in any application or game on Windows.
I don’t know how it happened but my xapofx1_5.dll file had suddenly disappeared from my system library. Maybe it was deleted by my antivirus for some reason. Anyway, I discovered that you can fix it by manually installing the xapofx1_5.dll file. So, I downloaded the file from https://fix4dll.com/xapofx1_5_dll, then I followed the website’s installation instructions. All you have to do is copy the downloaded file and paste it in the appropriate location. After that, I rebooted my system and launched it without encountering the xapofx1_5.dll is missing error. I hope this will help you to fix xapofx1_5.dll is missing error in Conan Exiles. Worth to mention that the game is very different now from what it was before the release and new biomes are just spectacular! Feel free to like and share this guide with your friends.
