Fix missing .dll file message.

Have you ever gotten a message on your computer saying that you are missing a dll file? I have gotten many of these messages and though a lot of people don't know it, it's one of the easiest problems to fix. dll files are basically how a program talks to the computer to tell it that it needs something. It may be something like it needs to print something. Without these dll files your program may be completely worthless. I did't do anything. How did my file go missing? This is a good question and there a lot of ways a dll file can go missing. You may have a virus on your computer that deleted it. It may have gotten corrupted some how and is unusable. The good and bad thing about dll files is they can be used by more than one program. It's bad because it may mess more than one of your programs up if it goes missing but its good because they are more widely available. Now, how do I get my dll file back. here is where it gets so easy. There are so many sites on the internet that offer dll files for download. My favorite happens to be dll-files.com but a quick Google search will reveal many more. All you have to do is go to this site and copy or type your missing dll file into the search bar. When the results return just go through the few steps to download it. After you've downloaded it you may need to extract it. If so you will need a program like winzip or winrar. Just right click on the file and select extract here. When you have just the dll file the only thing left to do is place it in the location that the message says its missing from. All done now you can enjoy your programs working the way you want them to.

go to www.dll-files.com. Find your missing DLL and download.

how can i install dill to my laptop? there is a message dill is missing!


I'm going to go out on a limb here and say what you meant to say was "dll" as in dynamic link library, and this depends on which ones you are missing. Typically you will have to re-install the program that is giving you the error message. If all else fails when you get the message again take note of the full file name "filename.dll" and do a Google search for it as a standalone file. If you go this route be aware that there are dangers and scan the file for viruses before copying it to your system folder.

    • 1 Download the missing comctl32.dll file. Locate a website that offers the comctl32.dll file. You can also use the link in the Resources section.
    • 2 Unzip the download file if it is a .zip-type file. Right-click on the file and choose "extract" to make the file available in a .dll format.
    • 3 Install the missing comctl32.dll file in the proper folder on the computer. If the operating system is 64-bit Windows, copy comctl32.dll to the "C:\Windows\SysWOW64" folder. If the operating system is 32-bit Windows, copy comctl32.dll to the "C:\Windows\System32" folder.
    • 4 Restart the computer by clicking on the "Start" button and selecting the "Restart Computer" option.
    • 5 Open the computer program that previously displayed the error message stating that the file comctl32.dll was missing. This will verify the program now works properly.

keep getting this message <window


Hello,
  • "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:
    <Windows root>\system32\hal.dll.
    Please re-install a copy of the above file."

    Please re-install a copy of the above file."

  • "Cannot find \Windows\System32\hal.dll"

  • "Cannot find hal.dll"
The "missing or corrupt hal.dll" error displays shortly after the computer is first started. Windows XP has not yet fully loaded when this error message appears. CauseCauses of the "missing or corrupt hal.dll" error include, naturally, a damaged hal.dll DLL file or a hal.dll file that has been deleted or moved from its intended location.Additional causes may include a damaged or missing boot.ini file or possibly a physically damaged hard drive.

    Please let me know you have any further questions or concerns.
Thanks.
