I have been waiting for the release of Sea of Thieves for a long time. I’ve been playing other pirate games but this one is just perfect. I have played closed betas and really liked the game. I purchased the game from Windows Store, but after downloading and installing it I couldn’t run it because of the xinput1_3.dll is missing and cannot be found on my system. This system error occurred immediately after I completed the installation. I tried verifying cache but discovered that there was nothing wrong with the game files. I wrote to the Sea of Thieves support but received a message a few days later informing me that the problem was with my launcher. However, even after reinstalling the launcher, I kept on receiving the xinput1_3.dll file error message and I noticed that the error only occurred when I tried to launch Sea of Thieves. I decided to visit the official forum in search of a viable solution and I was able to find one.
There are lots of topics on the forum, since the game have just launched. I had to dig deeper and deeper every topic to find the proper solution. The solution to this error is quite straight forward. All you have to do is to visit https://fix4dll.com/xinput1_3_dll and download the xinput1_3.dll file. After downloading, install the file into the game root folder or your system and then reboot the system. This was how I fixed my xinput1_3.dll is missing error, so I hope you find it just as useful. Hope this will be also working solution for you. Feel free to like and share it to help others.
