Are you trying to play any games that require Microsoft Live? Games for Windows Live is a pretty cool service, but it can also cause a lot of trouble. Sometimes Windows 7 and Vista will give you some weird errors, e.g. that xinput1_3.dll or xlive.dll is missing.
This is a description what you can do to fix the problem.
First of all, you should download the dll file “xinput1_3.dll”:
I’ve uploaded it to our server, so that it will be available whenever you read this post.
Make sure to copy the xinput1_3.dll into your game folder, as well as your Windows/system32 folder.
Note: When the dll file is inside the game folder it will try to use this dll first. If it’s not there it will look into the system folder.
Install Games for Windows Live
Next, the system might say that another dll is missing: xlive.dll.
I don’t recommend to put xlive.dll into the game folder, because I can’t guarantee that it will work. Instead you should download and install “Games for Windows Live”.
i downloaded games for windows live and the game opens and then closes automatically
jake, which game is it? Did you replace the xinput1_3.dll?
Hi I can’t run my game because my winows 7 says I should install xinput1_3.dll. I did but that download wouldnt open up. What should i do?
Hey man pls help me from where i can download xlive.dll for window 7
there are many dll download sites, I’d recommend reinstalling whatever XBOX service you want to use thou instead of downloading the xlive.dll somewhere else

You might have to put the dll file inside the game folder. Did you try that?
