Have you ever met the situation that when you run a program, it presents an error and fails to run? Most often, people may give it up and find another program which is not better than the last one. Actually, it may be caused by a Dill problem. Today we will help you figure it out about what is a dll problem and how to fix it.
Dll is the abbreviation of Dynamic Link Libraries which is used by Windows applications to run and perform optimally. It is the collection of modules which contains data and functions. Dll files are essential system components that will cause errors if they are not complete. It may be resulted from corruption of the files or deletion. Sometimes, they also run into errors when the hard disk is improperly cleaned by using disk programs. As a result, the program can not run properly because of lacking Dll files. Therefore, we have two ways to solve the problem.
Method One: Fix the problem manually.
1. Click the “Start” button, and then open the “Control Panel.” Choose the “Add/Remove Programs” utility(If you are running a Windows 7, pls click “Programs”, after that click “uninstall programs”), and remove the program that leads to the DLL errors. Reboot the computer. Log back in if necessary, and reinstall the program. Open the program again to make sure that it functions properly.
2. Try to find the corrupt DLL file. Remember the name and find the exact location of the file on the C: drive. Locate another computer running the same version of Windows, and find the DLL file on the good computer’s C: drive. Copy the DLL file to a USB flash disk. Rename the DLL file by adding a “1″ to the beginning of the file name. Connect the USB flash disk to the first computer, and copy the DLL file to the same directory as the corrupt version. Rename the old file by adding a “2″ to the beginning of the file name. Rename the new version by removing the “1″ from the beginning of the file name so that it becomes the correct DLL file. Reboot the computer and run the program that bringed the errors again.
3. Run a Repair Installation of Windows as a last resort. Insert the original Windows installation CD and reboot the computer. Access the computer’s boot order by pressing the “F12″ key or the manufacturer’s designated function key. Boot from the Windows CD, and choose the “Repair” option. Follow the Repair instructions for the Windows version you are running.
