Error code 80070485


One of the library files needed to run this application cannot be found.


In most cases this error occurs, because the driver extension of Soundpad isn't installed. It can happen if you install, uninstall and install Soundpad without restarts in between. Restarting the system after the last installation will then remove the driver extension as it is marked for deletion by the uninstall.


Easy way:

  1. Uninstall Soundpad and restart your computer.
  2. Install Soundpad and restart your computer one last time.

A little more difficult way, but fewer restarts:

  1. Run Soundpad -i as admin.
  2. Restart your computer.

  1. Right-click the start menu -> Command Prompt (Admin).
  2. Run that command: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Soundpad\Soundpad.exe" -i
  3. Restart your computer.
