How to Register DLL files

On Microsoft Window's operating systems, a DLL stands for Dynamic Link Library. DLL's are relatively small files that include a library of functions- usually data that can be shared across multiple applications. DLL's are called upon by various applications and can be loaded and utilized by these applications concurrently.
Registering a DLL
There are two easy ways that a DLL can be registered in your Window's operating system's registry, the first is the simplest, known as self registering files, the second way is to manually register a DLL.

Self Registering Files

It should be noted that many DLL files are self registering, they include information required to store themselves in the operating system's registry. As the name states, self registering files require no human intervention. Self registering files will automatically store themselves on your machine and become accessible when needed. Besides DLL files, other types of files that are sometimes self registering include .EXE and .OCX.

Manually Register Files

The second method used to register DLL files on your computer is via manual registration. Manually registering a DLL file is quite simple and can be done in only a few steps.
1. The first step is turn on your computer, launching your Window's operating system.

2. Once your Window's operating system has loaded completely, click on Start and then click on Run.


4. Once the command is input into the Run field correctly, press Enter.

5. Once the DLL has been registered, you should receive a confirmation in the form of a pop up box. This message will list your newly registered DLL file and confirm that is was successfully registered into the registry.

The ordinal 120 could not be located in the dynamic link library iertutil.dll


iertutil.dll is a dynamic link library used by Internet Explorer. Ordinal 120 refers to something inside the dynamic link library. These errors typically occur when the file is corrupt or there is a version mismatch (eg. IE 9 using iertutil.dll from IE 8). A reinstall of IE should fix this problem

Cannot open program , get the following message: Procedure entry point cannot be found V@YAXPAX@Z in dynamic link library msvcrt.dll.


Hello,

The message you are getting indicates the the copy of msvcrt.dll is not compatable with the program you are running.

By the way msvcrt.dll stands for Microsoft Visual C Runtime Library and is a 'dynamic link library' in case you were wondering.

I would recommend one of the following:

1: Contact the programs publisher and ask them about this issue and what version of this library IS compatible with your program.

2: Find the version of the copy of msvcrt.dll you have by going to C:\windows\system32\
find msvcrt.dll, right click on it and click on the 'Version' tab and write down the version number.

Go online and acquire a newer version of msvcrt.dll and place it in C:\windows\system32\

Hi, i got a eMachines el1200-07w preloaded with vista basic. i'm somewhat new to modding the aero interface (themes, bootscreens,visual styles/msstyles) on vista. Problem?: i was installing a Windows 7 Lookalike theme,and after i restarted windows, b4 i got to login, i got this error 'mess'age: ---- ''The ordinal 2000 could not be found in the dynamic link library USER32.DLL'' --- The files it applies to are: LogonUI.exe Slui.exe; and atbroker.exe. --- after that, the following programs halted: Task Scheduler Engine Windows Activation Client; and something called- ''Transitions Accessible Between Desktops'' and Windows logged me off. -Luckily- i created a Restore Point before i messed with the files for the theme. Anybody know what USER32.dll does, and what 'Ordinal 2000' is?


Hello,

Regarding on your problem, User32.dll is a Dynamic-link library (DLL) that implements the Windows User API Client Library. It is a core file for several versions of the Microsoft Windows operating system and it is very important in any Windows Operating System. If this file is damaged or deleted, the operating system will not work. Ordinal 2000 is part of the dynamic link library or DLL in USER32.dll it usually refers to the module and code under USER32.dll.
My recommendation: Please check first the installer you have downloaded if it is compatible with your current operating system. Make sure that the program you want to install are supported with your OS to prevent this problem again.

Thanks

I have "The procedure entry point _ismbspace could not be located in the dynamic link library MSVCR71.dll"


A DLL ("Dynamic Link Library") is a collection of subroutines (small programs) that can be used by many programs on your computer.This particular DLL is included with Version 7.1 of Microsoft's "C" programming-language.However, the appliation that tried to use the DLL is requiring a _newer_ version of that particular DLL.So, access http://support.microsoft.com to download and install the latest "runtime" library for their "C" programming language.
