BlueStacks has recently crossed 1 billion downloads, which is a huge milestone in itself, and has become the largest Android gaming platform right now, for PCs. And a few days ago, BlueStacks 5 (Beta) got unveiled which promised the users, 40 percent reduction in the RAM usage. The all-new BlueStacks 5 (Beta) which supports ARM devices offers an even faster boot, launch, and install times, and the company, recently, also stated that the gamers will also have a better gameplay experience which they can look at forward to. The BlueStacks app player evolved to become one of the top gaming platforms for computer systems, all around the world internationally.
But the users are facing an error, i.e. Newtonsoft.Json.dll, now let’s see how to overcome this issue through some simple methods.
The error message, regarding the Newtonsoft.Json.dll, is a kind of a Dynamic Link Library (DLL) file. Now such Dynamic Link Library (DLL) files are there to store information and instruction for the executable (EXE) files to follow. These files were specially created for the programs, such as BlueStacks App Player, which could share this Newtonsoft.Json.dll file, which is a huge help in saving valuable memory allocation, therefore making your computer more efficient and smooth.
So this error occurs because your Newtonsoft.Json.dll file may be missing due to an involuntary deletion, or it got corrupted from a power outage when opening BlueStacks, or it may be experienced a system crash when loading the Newtonsoft.Json.dll.
