FIX Borderlands 2 - Missing File Errors (xapofx1_5.dll, d3dx9_43.dll, XAudio2_7.dll, X3DAudio1_7.dll)

Borderlands 2 - Missing File FixWhen playing Borderlands 2 on the PC, you may encounter errors that are not present on the console versions.

Four errors that are particularly infamous for the PC version of Borderlands 2, are for the following files


1) Navigate to one of these two folders depending on if you have the Steam version of the game or the DVD / CD copy:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\Borderlands 2\Binaries\Redist\DXRedistCutdown
C:\Program Files (x86)\2K Games\Borderlands 2\Binaries\Redist\DXRedistCutdown

2) Launch DXSETUP and follow the install

Still not working? Then continue with the steps below. Make sure to have an application like WinRAR or 7ZIP (free) that can handle extracting CAB files.

Borderlands 2 xapofx1_5.dll Error

Are you missing this file? Not to worry, you actually have it!

The CAB file is located DXRedistCutdown\

Extract it, then put the file in the same folder as the game's EXE.

Borderlands 2 d3dx9_43.dll Error

Guess what? You have this file too!

It is located in the following CAB: DXRedistCutdown\

Extract it and again place it in the same folder as the EXE and game launcher.


Easy solutions are great!

Extract the CAB: DXRedistCutdown\

Drag it in the same folder as the game's EXE. Done!


Lastly, if you are experiencing this music / audio DLL file error, then no worries.

It is located in the CAB: DXRedistCutdown\

Extract it, grab the DLL, and place it in the folder with the game's EXE.

Note that the SYSTEM32 directory works as well, but is unnecessary if it runs in the same folder as your EXE. If you DO put it in the system32 folder though, you can reuse that DLL with other games if they ever require it.
