I was just entering the forest and leaving the town after killing Braccus (i.e. really getting into this awesome game!), and i got a new computer for Christmas that just arrived on New Year's eve. The new computer is a 64 bit PC with all the goodies, including a 970 nvdia graphic card. Loaded up all the new computer stuff, everything i know is loaded correctly, but when i re-loaded Divine Divinity: Original Sin (from GOG download files, along with the patch), i get the following error message:

The program can't start because XINPUT1_3.dll is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem., i uninstalled, and reinstalled. SAME exact message. I have no idea what to do next. I am running Windows 7 64 bit (was running Windows 7 32 bit before on the old computer). I have the latest drivers loaded from Nvidia for the geforce 970. ANY IDEAS???

Thanks and Happy New Years!

The XINPUT1_3.dll file is part of DirectX. Try re-installing DirectX 9c from the '..\Divinity - Original Sin\__redist\DirectX' install folder and reboot.

DirectX 9 is not included by default in Win 7 or 8, and DirectX 11 is not backwards compatible, so both need to be installed.
Thanks, i found a thing that updated ALL past directX possible missing items, and that fixed it! So, you were right, that was it...

Rainman, where and what did you find?

Never mind. Just downloaded it from
I faced with this error too and solved it in similar way. I found this file (XINPUT1_3.dll) here [url=][/url] and move it to my windows/system32 folder. After this Divinity works fine.
