BlackOps.exe Entry Point Not Found?

Asked By 30 points N/A Posted on -

Please help me, Techyv!  I have bought the Black Ops cd and installed it on my computer.  It was working fine, but now when I try to open it I get an error message that says:

BlackOps.exe – Entry Point Not Found Error

The procedure entry point SteamAPI_RestartAppIfNecessary could not be located in the dynamic link library steam_api.dll.

I’m not sure what’s going on, but I would really like to fix it.  I have already tried re-installing the program, but that doesn’t work.  Does anyone know how to fix this issue?

Do you have Steam installed? This is a common problem when you have a corrupted .dll what you need to do is You're going to have to install Steam (skip this step of course if you already have Steam installed). Try deleting the steam_api.dll or move it to a different location and try updating your game. Run it after update and see if you will have the same problem. If the problem persist, try downloading a fresh copy of steam_api.dll over the net (just Google steam_api.dll) and place it where it is usually located. restart your PC then try again if this fixes your problem.

Hello Stephanie,

First thing you will need to do to resolve that issue is to verify the games files and then do the following:
You will need to extract the .dll-file to a location on your computer.
It is highly recommended that you unzip the file to the directory of the program that is requesting the file.
In case that fails to work, you will need to extract the file to your system directory.
By default, you can get that file in the following location: C:WindowsSystem (Windows 95/98/Me), C:WINNTSystem32 (Windows NT/2000), or C:WindowsSystem32 (Windows XP, Vista, 7).
You will need to ensure that you overwrite any existing files, but before that make a backup copy of the original file.
After that reboot the computer and the issue should be fixed.
