DirectX 11 preventing install RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to install a game and this is what I get.


    "C:\windows\system\xaudio2_4.dll is either not designed to run on windows or it contains an error. try installing the program again using the original installation media or contact your system administrator or the software vendor for support."


    I've tried everything I can find online to get around this. I have Windows 7 64 bit so removing directx or rolling it back is not an option. I've tried several registry repairs and I've tried unpacking the dll and replacing it. No luck whatsoever.
