I was cleaning my Skyrim install from any mods, and I accidentally deleted my Steam_api.dll from the folder aswell.

Now, even if I try to very the game cache via steam it wont redownload it.

Can someone upload his steam_api.dll file from the skyrim folder for me please?

Try Pandora recovery to restore the .dll: http://www.pandorarecovery.com/
If you're lazy, then download it here: http://www.dll-files...shtml?steam_api

EDIT: Just fyi, if you're downloading the .dll from the link I provided, click "Download zip file" not "Download steam_api.dll fixer".

Doesent work. Thats not the right DLL file. It's probably the steam_api.dll from another game.

Could you please upload your steam_api.dll from the skyrim folder please? http://megaupload.com/

It's just a few kilobytes... It'll take you a few seconds. :(

Oh, the steam_api.dll is from the Skyrim directory. I thought it's one of Steam's main files, my mistake then.
Anyway, here's the file:

Sorry I didn't respond earlier, I was away for a bit.

Would uninstalling it and reinstalling it work?

If you had the exact same problem, I assume you deleted the same respective .dll file as the original poster did? You should download the file one of the earliest responder posted if, however, this is not the case reinstalling will solve your problem. Just make sure you don't accidentally erase your savegames.

Thanks for the help. Any ideas why it is running super slow though? This is why i accidentally deleted the steam_api.dll in the first place, because it was running extremely slow and I was trying to clean out my mods (I thought this was the problem).

Also, I did alter the amount of RAM skyrim could handle from <2gb to 2gb+, but this doesn;t seem to do anything.
