How To Run Blue Fire On Windows 7

Do not be fooled by the stores system requirements: The game does run on Windows 7 – it’s just that for for some god-forsaken reason the game “NEEDS” XInput1_4.dll to run.

The workaround

Step 1: Have Admin rights on your PC

Step 2: Go to Windows/System32

Step 3: Locate XInput1_3.dll

Step 4: Copy XInput1_3.dll to Desktop

Step 5: Rename XInput1_3.dll to XInput1_4.dll

Step 6: Copy your brand new XInput1_4.dll to System32

Step 7: Run the game

That’s all there is to it. Why does it need a Windows 10 exclusive dll when it uses none of its feature? I don’t know.


I give no warranty on you playing around in your Windows files. Obviously.

This workaround “should” help run the game. It works for me. But as any Tech-Priest can tell you, machines are fickle, and there’s no one-size-fits-all. If this doesn’t work for you, I can’t help you.
