Possible fixes for Dev Error 11557 in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

As soon as players reported facing Dev Error 11557, Infinity Ward responded with the cause of the error as well as a fix.

Reinstalling Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

The first suggested fix by Infinity Ward is to reinstall the game. Players will have to uninstall Modern Warfare 2 completely and then install it again on their preferred platform. This should stop Dev Error 11557 from showing up.

Changing On-Demand Texture Streaming

If the problem persists after reinstalling the game, Infinity Ward has suggested setting the allocated texture cache in the On-Demand Texture Streaming tab to a minimum. The On-Demand Texture Streaming option allows the game to download and stream higher-quality textures while you play the game to improve the game’s graphics and fidelity. Sometimes, the texture files might get corrupted while being downloaded and installed which might cause the problem.

To go to the allocated texture cache, follow this path: Setting>Grphics>Quality>On-Demand Texture Streaming>Show More>Allocated Texture Cache. There, set the allocated texture cache to the minimum level. This should fix Dev Error 11557. Some players have even reported that turning the On-Demand Texture Streaming off makes the error stop appearing and even more so, makes the game run smoother.
