To install just copy dinput8.dll next to NieRAutomata.exe.
Make sure to use your original NieRAutomata.exe file too btw, this should work with both Win7/Win10 EXEs.
If game doesn't run or gives an error code when running it, make sure you got VC2019 redist installed: https://aka.ms/vs/16/release/vc_redist.x64.exe
