My game says 'Failed to start, BinkW32.dll was not found

It is possible the BinkW32.dll is also located within your Windows, System32 folder. To stop this error from occurring, you would need to remove or cut out and paste the BinkW32.dll, elsewhere onto your machine.


1. Click on the Start button, now All programs, then accessories and then load Windows explorer. Now click on My Computer (Computer) then your C: drive, click on the ‘tools’ menu (top menu bar) and select ‘folder options’, ‘View’ (under advanced settings), ‘Hidden Files and Folders’ and finally, ‘Show hidden files and folders’ (make sure you have placed a dot next to this and press OK).


2. While in My Computer (Computer), select the C drive and click on the Windows folder, now click on the System32 folder. Locate the BinkW32.dll and delete it or cut and paste the file elsewhere on the computer.
