What is the Wxmsw28u_core_vc_custom.dll file?

Why do I need this file?

Without the file present at the correct location and at the right version the game you are trying to launch will simply stop in its tracks and throw an error up on the screen.

The first thing to try is a simple reboot of your system so that when you fire your machine back up the registry may be able to link the new DLL file with the game to tell it where it has moved too.

Then if this doesn’t seem to help you could try reinstalling the game completely to force it to check for the newest version and place that file in the correct location on your hard drive.
