Whenever I run a game it displays an error (program can't start because the *.dll file is missing from your computer , reinstalling the program may fix the problem) but after reinstalling again and again it display same error. As I have 1.7GB graphics card and DirectX version11, I can't understand what went wrong. Help me in this situation.

A mention to the specific DLL as well as the game would be of great help. plus: do you have directx end user runtime installed? –  Lorenzo Von Matterhorn Mar 27 '13 at 14:31
You deliberately hide useful information: the "*.dll" instead of the actual filename. Why? Don't you want help? –  stevenvh Mar 27 '13 at 14:55

Just put the missing dll name on google and you'll get link to download it. Usually it's old system files or framework files.

I don't think putting googled files in system directories is safe, especially if you don't know what that file's supposed to do. –  gronostaj Mar 27 '13 at 17:13
