This system component is responsible for the proper functioning of the Games for Windows Live service. Several video games can not start without the library.
xlive dll is a file that comes with the Windows operating system. It is necessary for running computer games downloaded from Microsoft Store.
This system library is normally located in the System32 or SysWOW64 subfolder in the main Windows directory, depending on your OS version. In some situations the component can become corrupted or be deleted by mistake. Users are able to download the file from our website to replace the original. The new library will be automatically integrated into your operating system.
If the problem persists, you are able to manually register the component using the command line window. It can be accessed from the Start menu or by pressing Win+R. You can execute the “regsvr32 xlive.dll” command to link the new file to the OS. It is necessary to restart the OS for the changes to take effect.
Alternative recovery options
Copying a fresh version of the xlive.dll file to the Windows folder does not always resolve the technical issues.
