Fixing Game Problems


Game Problems By Not Having Redists, Dotnet, & DirectX Installed


Hey everyone – it is becoming more and more popular now a days where people are complaining about their game not working or that they are getting certain errors due to such and such.
Well 99% of the time is because the person trying to run the game does not have the right things installed on his/her computer to do so.

So today I am going to try to help with this and link you to the correct/trusted sites with the three most common things you need for running your game without having any problems (fingers crossed).

The three main culprits in question are:

– Microsoft Visual C++
– Microsoft .NET Framework
– Microsoft DirectX

Now things like Microsoft Visual C++ goes back a long way, as far back as 2005 for you to be able to run a lot of games without problems, so depending on games your running you will need a few of the packages.

Listed below are the packs which are recommended:

Microsoft Visual C++
2005 (64bit) // 2005 (86bit)
2008 (64bit) // 2008 (86bit)
2010 (64bit) // 2010 (86bit)
2012 (64bit) // 2012 (86bit)

Microsoft .NET Framework
Only one needed, this will install the required one for your computer and latest version.

Microsoft DirectX
Only one needed, this will install the required one for your computer and latest version.

All the links above are official and trusted microsoft links.

That should hopefully fix your problems 99% of the time. The only other errors you will more than likely come across are .dll errors and for that you can find some of the most common fixes on my other blog post here.

Also note that most games you get now a days have a folder called _CommonRedist inside and it is highly suggested that you install everything in that folder for the game to run correctly.

I hope this post will help you with some problems you may encounter and please do feel free to let me know of anything else I can add or something I may of missed. Thank you and happy gaming 🙂

– Enjoy

    how to i extract a .bin file?i downloaded the new farcry 4 and it is all .bin files. I’m not sure what to do with these, what program do i need to mount .bin files?

  4. Mark (05 Feb 2015, 21:25)

    .bin files are CD image files, either you burn them to disc with something like imgburn or you find an app that reads the contents like Magiciso.

    I have the problem, how do I fix the error 0xc00007b? I have everything with the latest updates… I have the problem with GTA V.

    I got Battlefield3 crashing all the time due to an unkown error to desktop.. “bf3.exe has stopped working” etc. It’s an original one which I got from “on the house ” offer on origin for free.

    From the event logger i see always the same values of each category of information which exists in that box of infos about the problems my system had,..

    Is it possible to fix that error somehow even if I downloaded and installed the latest official DirectX , .NET and Visual C++ ?

    I have redownloaded the game several times and tried to “repair the installation” in origin client. I also contacted the EA support and they told me that it’s my ati drivers problem after reading the dxdiag I uploaded to them and they blamed the atidxx32.dll to be more specific. What i did then is to redownload all the latest bs, AMD have released and reinstalled it after cleaning up all remaining drivers and software and registry. I still got the same result “bf3.exe has stopped working” after this.

    I just want to go and buy a really heavy hummer and smash the god damn machine because everything is running great except the game I want to play on my free time. What would you suggest to try next before I proceed to the previously described action please? Any suggestion would be much appreciated…

    it’s x86, which is 32 bit, NOT 86bit.

    muito deliciaaaaaaa

  15. Marcello (10 Jul 2016, 17:15)

    If you use NVIDIA, check out driver n. 353.62.

    For some reason it works with games.

    Watch Dogs for example, don´t worked with the lastest NVIDIA driver.
    GTA V? Same thing.

    Hope I´ve helped.

I followed the steps and mounted the disc, replaced the files with the ones in the skidrow folder, added an exception in my antivirus, and have everything installed (.NET, Directx, c++, etc) but I keep getting the 0xc000007b error.The skidrow.bin file won’t mount, it says that its corrupted.
