Way not enough information here. Please submit all necessary screenshots as well as elaborate on your system configuaration (4GBs of RAM is worthless information in itself, at least the CPU and GPU model)

Thanks for the reply but I don’t have to provide additional info because I solved the issue by searching online. I downloaded the latest version of the missing DLL file from here: It solves my issue. Though, thanks once again.

Although I cant avoid saying, downloading DLLs from third-party sites is VERY dangerous - they are frequently malicious and compromise the security of your machine. It’s up to you, of course, just be warned of that :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
