For those who do not know that DLL stands for Dynamic Link Library and is a collection of files containing small amount of codes and other such data. They contain information that can be used by many programs at once therefore these files hold a lot of importance in computer world. They can be loaded and reused a number of times thus saving you very precious hard disk space which results in faster processing of programs. But for that to happen, you must know how to register a DLL.
Because of their importance, DLL files are the main target of computer viruses and spywares. Thus by infecting or corrupting a single DLL file a virus infects the functioning of many programs. A corrupted DLL file can be reused by registering it again in your Windows operating system. The importance of these files can be understood by the fact that these files help in communication between any software or hardware you have and your operating system. The programs requiring these files for normal functioning could range from anything like a printer to even Microsoft Word. Therefore it is very important that you have proper knowledge of various ways to register a DLL. Two of the common methods are:
* Some of the DLL files are self registering. As the name suggests, they do not need any human intervention. This is the simplest method of registering a DLL file, as you do not need to do it manually. These files contain information which enables them to register themselves automatically. They can be easily accessed whenever needed, but to enable self registration you need to have administrator rights of your computer.
* Another popular method is that of manual registration. Herein, you can perform the steps whether you are the administrator of the computer or not. Even though it may sound difficult but manually registering DLL files is as easy as self registering them. To manually register a file first you need to turn on your computer and load your operating system. After your computer has started, go to start tab and open the run box. Here you will input the command that tells the computer to register a DLL file. The syntax of the command is regsvr32/filename.dll. Input the location of your file at the place of path and also insert the filename. Now run the command. Within seconds you will get a confirmation message saying that the required DLL file has been registered successfully.
