Xlive.dll is missing error is very annoying and it was appearing every time I tried to run Dark Souls. It started to happen after I downloaded some anti-malware tool and scanned my system. A lot of malware was found on my computer and after cleaning it I started to get xlive.dll is missing error. Mostly it happens when I try to launch Dark Souls, but sometimes it appears when I try to open some other programs too. I lost all my saves in Dark Souls because of xlive.dll is missing error. The text of the system error stating that the program can’t start because xlive.dll is missing from my computer and to fix the problem I have to reinstall the application. Wrong, the reinstallation didn’t fix my issue.
After unsuccessful reinstallation of Dark Souls, I still was unable to run the game due to xlive.dll is missing error. I started to search on the Internet and tried a lot of guides and programs, but nothing helped me. I tried to follow some guide that I found on YouTube but in the end I downloaded some Trojan. Gladly I have my antivirus that immediately neutralized the threat. However, after spending few hours searching I finally found one working solution.
