If this file is missing, it's possible that your anti-virus software has removed it during, or after installation, because it fount a "false positive" in that file. This can happen when an anti-virus program's heuristic (or "smart"/"intelligent" etc.) scanner determines that a piece of software is suspicious. We always make sure that our releases are virus-free and The Chronicles of Riddick is no exception, therefore no actual virus is actually present in the game.
You should go into your anti-virus software's options and add either the dvm.dll file, or Riddick's installation folder, to its "whitelist" or "exceptions list".
If possible, please contact your anti-virus software's customer service and report this file as a false positive. Despite our best efforts, we weren't able to white-list the game in every major anti-virus program ourselves.
