The procedure entry point could not be located in the dynami

Jul 5, 2018 9:07AM PDT

So here is the whole Story folks, which i am having more than 2 weeks problems with Sad

1.) I downloaded a game (PayDay2) on Steam via friends account (he is using discord and some sdk, one of them is also discordrpc)

2) i tried to start the game but it was saying: @ Missing api-ms-win-.... .dll there was 10 or so of them. i downloaded all from this page ( )seperately and put them in the RIGHT folder!!!

3) Now when running the game its saying @payday2_win32_release.exe - Entry Point not found " The procedure entry Point could not be located in the dynamic link library C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\PAYDAY2\discord-rpc.dll. "

10.0) I deleted the whole game several times and tried to install them

11.0) I tried removing the discord-rpc.dll from the folder but it than says that the discord-rpc.dll file is missing

12.0) I INSTALLED A NEW CLEAN VERSION OF WINDOWS 8.1 and did a clean driver install, all! This time i downloaded the game over my steam profile (yes i have bought the game too Wink but i had forgot my password ....) -----> AND AGAIN SAME STEPS 2---->3 Sad(((((((((((((((((

ANYONE has ANYTHING on this ?? I would be so gratefull, all my friends playing it like and me just listening to them :$
i searched other forums and contacted steam and the game founder but no one seems to know anything. this is my last hope guys

I've never encountered such an error except when the games are on client PCs and they found a crack/pirate copy.

I suggest you try it from Steam next.

What is knly and ned?

A clean install of Windows will be a mess. There are so many drivers and apps and time required that I figure that I can't use the fresh install for at least a day till all updates are in and I've had time to install the drivers and apps specific to my PC.

After that, Steam just works. If it doesn't then something is borked with this PC.

You haven't told enough yet for me to guess why this happens.

so I fixed the problem by downloading the discord-rpc.dll on the web from different sites. non worked but the 4th one did work great. so game is up and running smooth :-D

turns out it was a mod of discord app which was needed to start the game

Very odd.

I usually get the game working and then try mods. I took this as the stock game install failed and shared the only time I encounter this is when a client brings in their game cracks. As you can imagine we can't help them.

Anyhow, next time, start with just the game. Add mods after the game is up so you know it's not the game.
