Short for Dynamic Link Library, .DLL files are executable programs which only applications or other .DLL files can load. Although you can't open .DLL files yourself, they are critical to any application that requires them. Missing .DLL files can cause application errors or prevent the application from loading at all.
- Did you know? You may already have the .dll file even though you are getting .dll errors. That's because the .dll file may have been moved or renamed by another application. Check to see if you already have the file on your computer. For more information see how to search your PC for .dll files.
