DLL search

Welcome to the DLLsearch.net site

We created our site in order to help users identify DLL files and solve problems related to DLL files, as an independent source.

What are DLL files?

A DLL is a library that contains code and data that can be used by more than one program at the same time. For example, in Windows operating systems, the Comdlg32.dll performs common dialog box related functions. Therefore, each program can use the functionality that is contained in this DLL to implement an Open dialog box. This helps promote code reuse and efficient memory usage.

When can you run into a DLL problem?

When a program uses a DLL, an issue that is called dependency may cause the program not to run. When a program uses a DLL, a dependency is created. If another program overwrites and breaks this dependency, the original program may not successfully run.

How to use our website

To search, type in the name of the DLL file you’re looking for, or at least a 3-character segment of it in the search field above, then click on the Search button. For example, if you're looking for information about the twain_32.dll file, then type the "twain_32.dll" filename into the search field, or just the "twai" segment, then click on the Search button. The wildcard characters ("*","?", etc.) cannot be used in the search.
