Unable to run IW5

Topic created · 22 Posts · 64 Views
  • Whenever I try to launch IW5 I get the error "Unable to load import '[email protected]' from module 'mss32.dll"

    I read the frequent issues section and it said my directory is wrong.

    At first I had it in C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3

    then I tried D:\Steam\Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3

    then I tried making a folder with just the dedicated server in it but that also did not work.

    Is there anything else I can try? Thanks

  • This usually happens when you download a mss32.dll from the internet. Those are all the wrong version. That file comes with the game so if you don't have it something is wrong with your installation, downloading random dlls from the internet is never a good idea. I mean it's pretty simple.. you just install the mw3 dedicated server via steam and browse to that folder in the plutonium launcher. By default it's gonna be

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Dedicated Server
    

    Works the same with the game if you own it on steam.

  • @Dss0 Sorry for the late reply. I didn't download anything extra. I downloaded Plutonium, went to my MW3 steam directory, where the dedicated server was downloaded, by steam, and that's the error I get.

  • @CoryM if you read his reply I mean it's pretty simple.. you just install the mw3 dedicated server via steam and browse to that folder in the plutonium launcher. By default it's gonna be

    C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 Dedicated Server
    Works the same with the game if you own it on steam. you have to open back up the pluto launcher go to game settings right next to play and change you file location to where its installed

  • That's exactly what I did. and I still get this error.

    Here is my dir. D:\SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3

    Here is what's in it: https://prnt.sc/tsspfy

  • This post is deleted!
  • @CoryM There is alot of files missing from that folder, verify it via steam. also make sure that is actually the directory steam installs the game to (right click game in steam library -> properties -> local files -> browse local files).

  • i copied the game to my other harddrive im sorry im a editor and didnt want to mess up the actual copy of mw3 or other stuff im new to pc but thanks for the help i really appreciate it

  • @kdr I wasn't even talking to you lol.
    Create your own topic instead of hijacking this one, your problem has nothing to do with CoryM's problem.

  • oof i wasnt trying to "hijack" nice way to talk to someone lol i was just trying to get help im new to this stuff anyway im having the same problem i cant even launch the game im just joining in on it bc i have everything downloaded for the game to work and its crashing on startup

  • @kdr Create your own thread. This thread was created by CoryM, not you. Even if you're having the same issue, make a new thread.

  • okay cool like i said im new to this shit i just went for help

  • @kdr said in Unable to run IW5:

    oof i wasnt trying to "hijack"

    You clearly were trying to do just that

  • @luigistyle not necessarily my guy i was trying to get help i just went on here for help didnt even know i could make a my own thread and the fact its starting an argument abt a small problem is ridiculous ill make a damn thread but damn even if it was an accident im hijacking nice way to welcome someone for help on a game

  • @kdr said in Unable to run IW5:

    @luigistyle not necessarily my guy i was trying to get help i just went on here for help didnt even know i could make a my own thread

    I highly doubt that but okay

  • @luigistyle lol you suppose to be a staff member bro look at when i made this account literally made this shit probably like two months ago just got a pc and wanted to play pluto and the one time i download the client and it doesnt work i come on here and see unable to startup iw5 i click and ask im in thee wrong wtf type of shit is that lmao i dont even use this site so how tf would i know thats a thumbs down on you guys

  • @kdr If you know how to find a thread then you've already likely gone past the button to create a thread, not to mention the very existence of this thread should be proof enough to any reasonable person that you can create your own.

  • @luigistyle well i guess i missed it when coming on this site and thats my fault going only for help theres no guide lines abt making a thread shit literally reminds me of reddit random people come on the site either for help or something else and thats literally what i did lmao believe me or not i dont have to lie abt something thats this small lmao thats childish to do why tf would i waste u guys time or make your day worse if YOU GUYS are the only help i could find bc YALL the only ones who know more then anyone ABOUT this client lmao great scientific assumption that i missed create a thread i appreciate the big help on that i hope my mw3 works lol

  • @kdr ............. if you want help make a thread. nobody's trying to be mean to you, we're trying to tell you how to get help with your issue. This thread isn't here for us to help you. This thread is for CoryM. So if you make your own thread, your issue can be addressed personally.

  • @Cahz thanks for that thats all i needed to hear instead of all this other bullshit i wouldve completely said sorry and made one i dont go on this site throughout my life i only been on this site like 4 times lol this shit crazy but i appreciate u smoothing it out Screenshot_11.png Screenshot_12.png this literally all i see so do i just go to make a new topic
