Does anyone know what a ".dll" file type is?

DLL = dynamic link library.

To put it shortly, it's a toolbox for applications.

It contains bribes of applications and functions that programs can use instead of programming them again everytime they're needed.

If one is missing it can mean :

- That it got erased by mystake (not bad)

- That the application isn't properly installed (needs reinstall)

- That your system directory is {censored}ed up (pretty bad)


Generic dlls can usually be found for free through Google.

Some less common ones are part of applications and won't be found but on the original CDs.
