Why do games give out an error?
To make the game easy to install and run withoutproblems, it is not enough to find a good resource for downloading it. You also need to start the game and work properly on your computer, and this requires matching a lot of the most diverse options. If there is at least a small problem in the system or in the game itself, the game either does not start at all, or it will work with errors.
Next, we'll talk about the most common problems with installing and running the game and how to solve them.
Errors: what are and how to remove them
Can not install
Such a problem can arise if yyou are a broken archive or deliberately corrupted (possibly even containing a virus) file. If the program does not want to be installed, just find another source to download the game and try again.
Also, problems can often arise because ofexcessive scruples of anti-virus and software protection of the computer. You can try disabling your antivirus and firewall. Just remember that you can do this only when you are convinced of the harmlessness of the file, otherwise you just run the risk of infecting your PC with serious digital parasites, which, of course, will not benefit him. Sometimes the launch of applications and games can be difficult because of the viruses already on your computer. Scan the system and remove the pests.
In addition, an installation problem may occur if the installation disk is damaged. Then there will be nothing else but to buy a new one.
If nothing happens
If you installed the game, but when you start it resolutely nothing happens, then, perhaps, the reason for the absence of the following programs on the computer:
- Net Framework and Microsoft Xna Framework (not only for games, but also for many other useful applications);
- Games for windows live (required for network games).
Errors related to DirectX
They can look like this:
- xinput1_2.dll and so on.
The DirectX program is vitally important,so that your computer can correctly play games and some other multimedia applications that have solid graphics, surround sound and three-dimensional animation. If the PC issues the above errors, then you need either to install this program on the computer, or simply update the existing version.
And for the newest, most advanced (athis is almost all the most popular toys) will require DirectX 11 version. But here you need to consider that this program is only for Windows 7, 8 and Vista. But XP does not support it, and so games / applications that require this version of the program, you will not go. You will either need to install another OS, or try to enable compatibility with your OS version. You can do this by right-clicking on the game icon and selecting "Properties". Then go to the "Compatibility" tab, tick the "Run the program in compatibility with ..." window, and then select the desired option from the drop-down list.
The reason why games produce an error of this kind may be the lack of the necessary software or the incorrect installation of the file itself. So try:
- Update DirectX;
- remove and re-put the toy;
- Update or reinstall the drivers for the video card (you can do it from the official manufacturer website of your product);
- update or reinstall the drivers on the sound card.
And with regard to drivers I would like tonote that they must be updated regularly. If the update for some reason does not occur, then at some point any of the applications or the game, the program simply will not start. And the fact that you have one game, does not mean that all the others, especially the new ones, should go. After all, games are constantly updated, improved, and therefore the requirements for the system for them are growing.
