Crash: Error: Unable to load ifm.dll
When I try to launch SFM it crashes with the message:

Error: Unable to load ifm.dll

I tried uninstalling and installing again, verifying the data and renaming the file and verifying again. Do you need C++ things or something? It worked fine back in august, but after I uninstalled it and reinstalled it today, it doesnt work.

Try launching through the SDK. I think SFM is just being finicky... This is a common occurence. Even though you uninstalled and reinstalled, revalidate the cache and reboot everything... Computer, modem, etc.
This might be a stupid question, but is the ifm.dll file actually present in your SFM folder? (.\game\bin\tools\)
Standard questions: did you change drivers, install anything important, change hardware lately?
Updating your C++ redistributables can't hurt.
I've only updated my NVidea driver. I'll update my C++ redistributables.
Alright, When looking in the SFM files, there is a folder with a C++ redistributable installer in it which I didnt have. Weird that it didnt install it, anyway, Installed it now and it works!
*I know, this discussion is old, but I want to add something.
If someone has this problem with a X64 Computer (like me), try to install the X64 and the X86 Update of C++ (available on SFM Files), it's stupid, but works.

Well, where is the file?
I can confirm that to fix the ifm bug all you gotta do is install/repair both editions of C++ which are found in SourceFilmmaker\_CommonRedist

He's Right, i had the same problem today, but then, i went to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\SourceFilmmaker\_CommonRedist\vcredist\2010 and repaired everything, And it worked, Thank You Man!
Hey Dudes,How can you repair the folder?
Thanks In Advance!
the ifm.dll error is still showing up even if i just repaired C++ 2010
Did you reboot the computer after the repair? (Sorry, I just had to ask.)
