    There is some trouble faced by some people who are trying to install Metro 2033 game on pc. It is actually hard to tell how this error occurs cause of the different configs that are loaded on evey individual's pc systems. However, there is a folder called "Install" where most of the game files is going to be needed and it is located under the games installation directory.

    For Windows XP, try:
    C:\program files\THQ\Metro 2003\install

    For Windows Vista, try:
    C:\program files\THQ\Metro 2033\install

    For Windows Vista x64, try:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\METRO 2033\install

    If you encountered X3DAudio1_7.dll is missing while playing Metro 2033 game on pc then it is most probably related to some DirectX missing a few required files. You just need to update it so it will get fixed. You can download the latest version of DirectX from Microsoft’s website. Once it is updated you will no longer get that error message while trying to play that game.
