Raceroom Racing Experience Won't Start

Quarantine life means finding ways to spend time at home.  That means video games!

Installed Steam and looked for a free racing game.  Found Raceroom Racing Experience.

Installed it, but it wouldn't run.

Debug Steps:

  1. Open Steam
  2. Go to Library -> Raceroom Racing Experience
  3. Press the gears setting icon, Manage, Browse Local Files
  4. Find RRE.exe
  5. Run that and it will give you the actual error.
  6. This lead to XINPUT1_3.dll missing

  9. Game starts now!
