The isDone.dll error in Windows 10 is mostly related to the installation of computer games and large programs. Large games or programs contain compressed data, which are unpacked on the hard drive during installation. This consumes both your computer’s RAM and your hard drive. If your PC’s memory or hard drive is insufficient to handle the process during installation, your computer may experience this error.
What causes a missing ISDone.dll?
The most common cause of ISDone DLL error is that your computer does not have enough memory or hard disk space to install large game files.
There are also other reasons that may also cause Windows 10 ISDone.dll error:
- If the Unarc.dll file is damaged or missing, it may cause an “isdone.dll error unarc.dll error-1l” error because some games and applications need these files to work properly.
- Sometimes a third-party antivirus program or Windows firewall may block the installation of a game.
- Faulty media or bad sectors in RAM or hard drive can cause the “Isdone.dll missing” error.
