Ordinal 42, xlive.dll

Asked by rickymathews on 12/01/2012 at 5:32 AM
I've reinstalled a game onto windows 8 pro which I had on windows 8 release preview. It worked fine before, and when I tried to start it the first time, it said I had a missing dll, which was fine, so I downloaded it and extracted into the sys64 folder. I then tried to open the game again. This time I got this error: "The ordinal 42 could not be located in the dynamic link library C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\xlive.dll."

The live programme I suspect the xlive.dll is referring to is microsoft games. I've also downloaded xlive.dll and extracted it into SYSTEM32, and it didn't work, I just got the same error message. The error message appears as soon as I click on the game. Hopefully I've supplied enough information. Please help :(
