Why Is It Important To Have DLL Files?

A DLL file is a tiny part of the operating system of your Windows powered PC that effectively allows countless applications and programs to operate properly.

Each DLL file does this by undertaking just one task, but doing that task for many different programs.

Think of it this way. Every time that you double click a program icon on your PC, you expect it to open up.

Something inside your machine has to tell that program to open. That will be a DLL file.

However, that single DLL file will do that one ‘opening up’ job for many different programs, rather than for only one.

In this way, the Microsoft people are able to reduce the size of the Windows system by having one file work with10 or 20 or a 100 different programs, rather than each program carrying the same file.

So far, so good.

The problems start to occur, however, when there is any kind of problem with the DLL file in question, as it means that the same number of programs and applications are now compromised.

One such problem is that sometimes DLL files get lost or go missing.

Let’s take a look at how that could be.

Why Would A DLL File Become Missing?

The first point to make is that it would be very unusual for any part of the operating system of your computer to just ‘go missing’ on its own.

Something else needs to make it go missing, or to lose it in the first place.

The most common scenario is that a program or application that was using the DLL in question causes it to go missing, and this most often happens when you install or uninstall a software program on your PC.

Say, for example, that you choose to install the latest version of some software program.

Almost invariably, it will bring with it the latest version DLL file too. This then automatically overwrites the old version DLL that several programs were using.

Then you discover that, in fact, the old version of the program works far better for you, so you uninstall the latest version.

And it takes its new DLL with it.

Hence you now have a ‘missing’ DLL which lots of different programs need in order to be able to operate properly.

Those programs and applications will therefore no longer function correctly, and in some cases, there is a chance that they will not operate at all.

So, the DLL did not go missing of its free will!

It was the program that was working with it that caused it to go missing, with the result that lots of other programs will now malfunction and suffer errors.

How To Locate Missing DLL Files

As suggested above, when a new DLL is introduced to your machine with a new program it will, in general, overwrite any existing DLL’s that are carrying out the same task.

It does not do so entirely, however.

The Microsoft guys that thought up the DLL system in the first place were smart enough to anticipate this problem, and so they built a ‘fail-safe’ into the Windows system, a ‘back-up’ if you like.

The problem is that no-one barring a Microsoft engineer could possibly have the first inkling of how to find where the back-up is located and then how to activate it so that the operating system is restored to full health!

Now, I would guess that if you had an awful lot of time on your hands and were feeling very, very determined, you might be able to dig down deep enough into the Microsoft website to find out what you are supposed to do.

But, I tried, and I definitely couldn’t manage it, so who knows?

What I do know is that I decided to ‘cheat’ by doing the job the easy way.

First, I scanned my system using the market leading registry repair software.

Not surprisingly, the scan highlighted that I had some missing DLL files!

I then downloaded the program itself (below) and told it to go and locate the missing DLL’s. Which it did, and then proceeded to affect a complete repair and tidy-up operation for the whole of my Windows system.

So, the simple answer is, if you have a missing DLL, then, as far as you and I are concerned, it’s gone.

But the chances are that it hasn’t really gone (it’s just been misplaced!) and that it will locate and re-install it for you in a moment!
