Windows System Requirements for the PlayStation Emulator
Any modern machine with a decent graphics card should have no problems with the emulator.
Unless you have an old computer, you should be able to run the emulator. If your system barely runs Windows XP, and/or does not meet the minimum requirements outlined below, you should not attempt to run the PSP Emulator. At best, it won't work. At worst, it could overheat your system, damaging components, and potentially costing you money.
These are the minimum specifications to run the PPSSPP Emulator (higher specifications means your system will run the PSP Emulator better):
- Processor: Any Dual-Core CPU, or a Single-Core CPU of at least 2.0GHz
- Memory: 2GB RAM (more is better)
- Hard Drive: 5GB minimum free disk space (for application and ROM storage)
- The more games you have, the more Hard Drive space you will need
- Video: 256MB Stand Alone Graphics Card (note that some built-in GPUs may work too)
- Operating System: Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8
To find out your system's properties:
- Press the Start button.
- Right-click on "Computer."
- Select "Properties."
Software Requirements for Running the PSP Emulator
You might need a few extra programs to install PPSSPP.
Depending on your system and the version of Windows you are running, you may need some extra applications, drivers, or files to get your PPSSPP Emulator installed and working. Usually, it's best to do a quick check to see if you already have these programs before you start. This is especially true for those of you who might not always have the best internet connectivity.
Make sure you download the correct version for your computer. This is dependent on whether your version of the Windows Operating System is x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit). If you're not sure how to check this, it's covered in the Questions and Answers section of this guide.
You will need:
- A file extractor, such as 7-Zip or WinRar.
- The latest version of the PPSSPP Emulator.
- Microsoft's Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013 (supports from version '0.9.7' of the PSP Emulator, up to the latest version).
- If you are running an older install of the PPSSPP Emulator, and are on an x86 (32-bit) system, you should instead install Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86).
- If you are running an older install of the PPSSPP Emulator, and are on an x64 (64-bit) system, you should instead install Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x64).
- The latest version of Microsoft DirectX that your PC supports. Note that this is dependent on a combination of factors from your system hardware and Operating System. Thus, it can vary from system to system, but should be installed with Windows Update, explained in step 4 of this section of our guide.
- PSP ROMs (ISO). These are the games you will play, and there are many different sites they can be downloaded from, such as Emu Paradise - Old School ROMs.
Note that in rare cases you may also need to install one or more .dll files to make your PPSSPP Emulator work. That is discussed in our section on How to Fix Missing DLL Files in your PSP Emulator
How to Download and Install the PPSSPP Emulator
Here's how to install and play your first PlayStation game on your Windows PC.
This section is the main part of this guide. It walks you through every step of installing the PPSSPP PSP Emulator, including installing and playing your first game.
- We've also made a Video Guide of this process. Just keep in mind that VisiHow is constantly being updated, and written instructions are usually more up to date than video.
For example, the steps below cover both the legacy build, and the newer self-installing builds in Version 0.9.8, which requires Visual Studio 2013.
Follow these steps to download and install the PPSSPP Emulator:
- 1We recommend 7-Zip, because it's a free open source application capable of extracting almost all other zip formats. We will use this application to extract the PPSSPP Emulator and to extract your first PSP Game ISO.If you haven't already done so, download and install a zip file extractor.
- 3Note that we recommend always using the latest build, as linked above in Step 3.Now download the PPSSPP Emulator Installer, which will guide you through the steps to install the application.
- 5To do that, right click the PPSSPP zip file and select 'Extract files'.
- 8You can download them here: PSP ISOs. Use the letters to browse the game that you want. In this tutorial, I will download Tekken Dark Resurrection. Click the letter 'T'.Minimize the PPSSPP folder and download ROMs or games.
- 17To play the game, go to the PPSSPP folder again
- 19If you have a PlayStation or Xbox controller for your PC, now is the time to connect it.
- 20Load the game by clicking 'Load' on the main screen of the PSP Emulator.
Although we extracted all our files to Desktop, we recommend creating a separate folder for each game. This will help you keep things organized, and know which files go with which games, for when you're done with a game and want to delete it from your computer.
How to Map Keyboard Controls in PPSSPP
Want to change the way your keyboard interacts with the PlayStation Emulator? No problem.
It's very easy to update your keyboard controls to almost anything need, just follow these steps:

How do I Fix Problems with My PPSSPP So I Can Play
I can't play! What can I do to fix my PSP Emulator so I can play?
You've followed all of the steps in this guide, have the system requirements, and yet still can't get your PPSSPP Emulator to work. No problem. You've probably just encountered one of the several simple problems that can be easily fixed.
My PPSSPP software always closes.
If you have this problem, you're probably not right clicking the PPSSPP file icon, and selecting 'Run as Administrator.' Try that, and see if it helps. If you don't select 'Run as Administrator', the application will close immediately after you open it.
I'm running as an Administrator, and my PPSSPP software still always closes.
If you're experiencing this problem, then you've accidentally installed the wrong version of the software for your operating system. To get the correct version, use one of these two links:
How can I tell if my operating system is 32-bit or 64-bit?
If you need help telling what version of Windows you are running, just follow these steps.
- 1Click on your 'Start Menu'.
- 2Go to 'Control Panel'.
- 3Go to 'System maintenance'.
- 4Click on 'System'.
- 5Under system, look for the system type.
- 6You will see if it is 32bit (or x86), or 64bit (x64) Windows.
My game is still closing, what can I do?
In this case, you could have problems due to DirectX, or it could be due to another issue. To get started correcting it, make sure your version of DirectX is up to date, with Microsoft Automatic Updates.
- 1Click 'Start' and go to the control panel.
- 2Click 'System', then click the automatic update tab.
- 3Go to 'Performance and Maintenance'.
- 4Click 'System'.
- 5Click the automatic update tab.
- 6Select the option that you want to update.
After using Windows Update, I still can't get my PPSSPP Emulator to load.
In this case, you need to take the following steps:
- 1Visit this link to the PPSSPP Downloads Page, and make sure you are running the most recent version of the PPSSPP Emulator, by downloading and running the 'Windows Installer'.
I am running an older version of the PPSSPP Emulator, but I don't want to upgrade - what do I do?
In this case, you will need to download and install the VC 2010 Redistributable Package.
- 2Click 'Download'.
- 3Click 'No Thanks', and 'Continue'.
- 4Install 'VC2010 Redist'.
I still have problems with my install on Windows 7 and/or Windows 8 64-bit Operating System.
In this case, you can try to downgrade your PSP Emulator.
- 1Download and install one of the old 64-bit emulator builds, and downgrade your version of the PPSSPP PlayStation Emulator.
How to Fix DLL Problems in the PPSSPP Emulator
I keep getting a message that I am missing the 'MSVCP100.dll' and / or 'MSVCR100.dll' files.
If you have already followed the steps above to update your PPSSPP Emulator to the latest version, and have also updated your VC 2013 Runtime, you can try to install new DLL files. Alternatively, if you're running a legacy version of the PSP Emulator, these steps will still work for you.
Please note that these steps are exactly the same for each of the two DLL files you'll be downloading (MSVCP100.dll' and 'MSVCR100.dll'), so we've only provided the instructions once. Simply repeat them for the second file, substituting the name. You can also use these steps to troubleshoot 'MSVCP120.dll' difficulties.

- 9Open the 'Windows' folder.
- 10Look for 'System 32' and 'System' folders.
- 11Paste 'MSVCP100.dll' and 'MSVCR100.dll' into the 'System 32' and 'System' folders.
- 12Please let us know if they do not, and remember to provide detail on your system, and the version of the PPSSPP emulator that you're using.These steps should fix your DLL problems.
How to Upgrade your PSP Emulator to PPSSPP Gold
Why would I pay for something that's free?
PPSSPP Gold is almost exactly the same application as PPSSPP (without the gold), the only differences are the icon, and lifetime rights to download PPSSPP Gold on Windows. You also get a gold account on the site, and the ability to access Gold versions on other platforms in the future. Of course, the developers who code it didn't have to write the code for free, so if you have a few dollars to send their way, why not?

All you need is a PayPal account or a card that PayPal can process, and you can make a donation to the developers. Here is the current price list (note that this is subject to change):
So, if you want to say thanks to the developers in the form of a contribution, just follow these steps:
- 2Note that all donations give the exact same reward, so you can donate as much or as little as you'd like to.Select the amount that you want to donate.

In order to connect it, you must actually create an ad hoc server using your server. Now, after setting up the Ad hoc network, connect your PSP to that connection but you must first enable CWM in your PSP. This process is quite complicated. But if you really wish to try, there are things you need to create. Ad hoc server, enable CWM to clock work mode in your PSP and set the IP on both of your computer and PSP and then connect it.

- Click the Browse button. A new window should pop up.
- Navigate to the folder where you put your games and select it. If they are set to your Drive C: then click the Computer then the Local Disk C: and look for the folder where you placed all of the ISO.

[DELETE? Seems unnecessary, it's repeating the main article. I edited it anyway just in case]
Before you begin the installation process, make sure that your computer meets the minimum requirements for the program to install and run properly on your Windows XP computer:
CPU with at least a 2.0GHz or even higher Graphics card of 256MB or higher RAM of 2GB or Higher At least 500MB for the program or higher for your games
If your computer meets the requirements, follow these steps:
- Visit http://www.ppsspp.org/downloads.html and download the program to the folder of your choices on your computer.
- If the file is in a .rar or .zip folder, right click on it and choose "extract here" (or select the destination you want). You will need an unzipping program like 7-Zip or WinRAR to do this. You can get WinRAR free at this link: http://www.win-rar.com/download.html?&L=0
- Look for the PPSSPP folder and open it. Double click on the PPSSPPWindows for 32bit, and PPSSPPWindows64 for 64bit (you can check which one you are running by right clicking on "My Computer" and selecting "Properties").
Now all you need to do is set a directory where the emulator can find your games. Download some ROMs and put them into one folder. Once you set the directory to this folder, the program will automatically scan it for new games and add them to the games tab.
To set a directory, simply click on the Games tab, choose Browse, and look for the folder where you placed your games.
How can I check the Windows system if my hardware is compatible with the PPSSPP
Do you have a My Computer icon on your desktop? If so, all you have to do is right click on it and select Properties.If you do not, click the Start button, then right click on it and select Properties.
Above all said are my problems
Unfortunately, some ROMs have problems and will hang. This is dependent on the ROM, but trying another one, or updating to the latest PPSSPP can help fix this.

See more questions like this: It is stucking and the audio is also a bit noisy

What should I do? Please tell me what to do please?
When I open PPSSPP it gives an error that current driver doesn't support opengl 2.0
If you get this error, it may mean you need to get a new video card. Your current video card may simply not be current enough to run PPSSPP.
You can also try updating your drivers, though this is not guaranteed to fix the issue. To do this:
- Click on Start, then Control Panel.
- Select Device Manager.
- Click on Display Adapters.
- Right click on the video card listed and select "Update Driver Software."
- Choose to search automatically for driver updates.
- Restart your computer when the process is finished.
