Dynamic link library (DLL or.dll) is a set of small programs (files) that are called
upon simultaneously by various executable programs in Windows to perform certain tasks like
connecting to a device etc. Sometimes, these files get corrupted and hence need repairing.
The below mentioned guide will help you register these files on your own. This essentially
means that you don't need to contact Microsoft technical support for help.
Before beginning with the procedure, you must know that names and path of the files that
needs to be registered. If you didn't know the names and/or path, you would not be able to
register them. Moreover, if you are not sure what to do, take help of an expert friend or person.
It is because messing up with registry can lead to system crash and other severe problems in
Click on the Start menu and navigate to Run. If you don't see Run anywhere in your programs,
then press the Windows and the R keys together on the keyboard. This will immediately bring
up the Run dialog box.
Type "regsvr32 C:\Windows\System32\Name.dll" in the blank field (without quotes and as
it is) and then click on the OK button. This command is intended for the example purposes.
You must replace the location (path) as well as name of the file (Name.dll, here it should
be the name of the file with.dll as the extension and not just Name). For example, you have
your files stored in H:\ drive and not in C:\ drive, then you would type regsvr32 H:\location
of the file\name of the file followed by.dll.
Once you are done typing and clicking on the OK button, you will see a dialog box showing
that the file has been successfully registered. Click on the OK button to close the message
window. If the program did not launch automatically, then open it manually.
If you get an error message like the specified module or entry could not be found, then
it indicates that you are either typing the location or file name wrong or the.dll file that
you are trying to register is not compatible with your version of Windows. If none of these
is the case, then try disabling the UAC (User Account Control) in Control Panel.
You may need admin privileges to run such command or tweak around with the registry.
You can also download and install Dependency Walker 2.2, an automatic tool for registering
missing libraries or fix common problems. Download it from its official website (depencencywalker.com)
and save the file to your desktop. Double click on its icon to open and install it using the
wizard's instructions. When the program is installed, run it to initialize the process. The
program has been designed to support all the old and new versions of Windows.
