What Is a DLL File in Windows

DLL short for Dynamic Link Library refers to a type of file format containing multiple codes and procedures for Windows programs that can call upon to do many things. And DLL is helpful to share data and resources, allowing multiple applications to access the contents of a single file at the same time.

However, sometimes the application is not working due to a DLL problem. Keep reading to know more information.

DLL Missing or Not Found Errors

When trying to open an application, you may receive an error saying a .dll file is missing or not found. Usually, errors on the computer can come in many different forms:

  • The program can't start because the .dll file is missing from your computer. Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.
  • Cannot find .dll. Please, re-install this application.
  • This application failed to start because .dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

For Windows 10/8/7 users, this issue is not a new one. Why are missing or not found DLL errors so common? There are many reasons for it:


1. Accidentally delete a DLL file

When trying to clean up space on a hard disk or uninstalling/installing a program, a DLL file may be deleted mistakenly. 

2. DLL file is overwritten

A recent installation of a program may overwrite an existing DLL file with an invalid or incompatible DLL file.

3. A DLL file gets corrupted.

A bad application installation may corrupt one or more files, causing .dll errors.



Besides, malware infection, hardware malfunction, etc. can cause DLL file errors. If you also find DLL files are missing or not found, what should you do? Here are many possible ways for you to fix DLL errors.
