According to developer Infinity Ward, the Dev Error 11557 code appears when Modern Warfare 2's game files are corrupted. It usually happens when the game isn't properly updated to the latest version or the system is unexpectedly turned off during the update process.

Here are the potential fixes suggested by Infinity Ward to fix Dev Error 11557:

Reinstalling Modern Warfare 2

The first way to fix this error is by reinstalling the game to repair the corrupted files. If you have installed the game through the Steam launcher, then we advise verifying the game files via these steps:

  2. Select the Local files tab and click Verify integrity of game files.
  3. Steam will verify the game's files. This process may take several minutes.

If the Dev Error 11557 code persists even after reinstalling the game, the corrupted file could likely be in the streamer cache. In this case, Infinity Ward has advised setting the On-Demand Texture Streaming option to the "minimum" option. On that note, here are the steps to do the same:

  1. Launch the game

  2. Go to Settings > Graphics

  3. Click on more options and find On Demand Texture Streaming
