Engine Error: Platform Error: Bad Module 'serverbrowser.dll' not loading

When I try to launch PVKII, the game begins to load, then crashes with the message "Engine Error: Platform Error: Bad Module 'serverbrowser.dll' not loading" before I can reach the title screen.  PVKII is the only game this is happening with.  I was able to play fine over the summer, then I had to uninstall the game for a while.  When I reinstalled the game a couple weeks ago, I had this error and have not been able to solve it.

Things I have already tried:
Validating Game Cache (tried multiple times)
Uninstalling and reinstalling PVKII
Uninstalling and reinstalling steam
Updating Drivers
Rolling back Nvidia drivers
Disabling Shadowplay
Unistalling Nvidia Geforce Experience
Renaming 'ServerBrowser.dll' to 'serverbrowser.dll'

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks!


  • I was able to get past this error.  For me, I just needed to install a windows update.  I don't know if this will work for everyone who has this issue, but it may be worth a try.
