View Full Version : problem with binkw32.dll in Oblivion

04-01-06, 08:09 AM
When I want to install TES4 Oblivion I get this table:
"this application has failed to start because binkw32.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem."

I downloaded binkw32.dll and put this file to system32 and Oblivion folders but doesn't work.
Now I get this table:
"the procedure entry point _BinkCopyToBufferRect@44 could not be located in the dynamic link library binkw32.dll".

I don't know what to do... Thanks in advanced.

You could try removing or renaming the video files. The ini file for oblivion in your documents folder might have an option to disable the video files from playing.

If I am not mistaken bink is to do with all the videos the game plays. You could try install one of those codec packs you can find on the web.

Also I would look on the official forums to see if this has happened to other peeps already.

Cheers :D

Maybe you could drop the link where I can get those codec packs?
