Error when trying to load Borderlands 2


9 posts in this topic

I have been having issues when trying to play Borderlands 2, most of the time when I try to load the game, the launcher loads, but the game never starts. I read somewhere that a possible workaround was to load it via steam, and play it that way. That worked for a few times, but now when ever I try to load I get this message:

What can I do about this?

Steam is running, just not active (minimized to tray).

try using to steam to verify the game cache link.

Everything checks out OK :/ I might reinstall the game, see what happens...

Forced it to update again, now I no longer get the error message, but the game still crashes after the splash screen.

Oh right, I was just asking because if you were asking for help for a version running without Steam that would mean I would have to lock the thread ;)

All I can do to help is the cache thing or just downloading it again through Steam. Your save will be kept intact so there's nothing to worry about.

I dont know much about this but why is it looking for kernel32.dll in SysWOW64 ?

Isn't that wrong?

edit: nevermind, its there on my pc

Well I uninstalled it, then reinstalled it sans the updates,and so far (knock on wood!) it is working. I am wondering if may have something to do with my OS drive being shot to hell, but I do not allow games or steam to install to the OS drive, so I am wondering if it may download to the OS drive then install to the drive? Regardless, it is working for now, and I am going to enjoy it!

It's a "thunking" layer that redirects the calls to the 64-bit library.
