What Should I Do When a DLL File is missing?

If you encounter a missing DLL file, you can either download it from the internet or try to copy it from another PC. While you may find plenty of sites offering free DLL files, it is essential to know the sites’ reputation. Another option is copying the DLL file from a trusted and working PC.

Unregister and re-register the DLL file

If DLL file has been deleted from your computer, you can re-register it to resolve the problem. However, you will need administrator privileges or command-line tool to do this. To re-register dll-files.org, open the command-line prompt and type the path to the DLL file.

If the file you are trying to uninstall has a long and complicated name, you can use the /u and /I parameters to remove it. Once done, exit the command-line window and restart the computer. This process will solve the missing DLL error.

Re-registering a DLL file may not fix all of your issues. Sometimes, the problem is with the application or the library. You may need to uninstall and reinstall the program or update the library to fix the problem. When doing so, ensure that your installed version matches the application’s version.

Some free tools can help you with this problem

The latter has drag-and-drop support, which allows you to select multiple files and drag them to a folder. Alternatively, you can copy and paste the selected files into a Windows Explore folder. The software also includes a registry editor and allows you to create an a.reg file to clean up registered files on many machines.

If you have administrative privileges on your computer, you can use the Command Prompt to unregister and re-register a missing.DLL file. You may need to do this if the problem has been around for a while. Alternatively, you can also use a third-party tool called Emsa Register DLL Tool.

To re-register a DLL file on Windows, you must first locate it. This isn’t easy because most DLLs have difficult-to-remember names. The path to a 32-bit DLL will be in the WindowsSystem32 folder.

To manually register a missing DLL file in Windows 10, you can open the Command Prompt and type “regsvr32”. Once in the Command Prompt, type the name of the missing DLL in the text box. After that, press the Enter key. A confirmation message should appear.

Reinstall the program that uses the DLL file

If you notice that a particular DLL file has gone missing on your computer, you can try downloading it from the Internet. Many sites offer free DLL files, but you should be careful about which ones are trustworthy. You can also try to copy the file from another computer.

You can also try to restore the missing file by performing a Windows System Restore. This will restore the file to its original location. Then, reinstall the program that uses the DLL file. However, this solution does not always work. Sometimes, the DLL file was accidentally deleted. Then, you need to restore it by right-clicking the missing file and selecting “Restore.” You must then reinstall the program and reboot your PC.

If you still experience this problem, you can try using Command Prompt to re-register the missing.dll file. Press the Windows + R keys to the Run utility or Ctrl+Shift+Enter to open the Command Prompt as administrator. Be aware that you may have to grant the administrator permission to make changes.


If the file is missing, it can be hard to find. If the program is small enough, reinstalling it will automatically install the missing DLL file. This option is excellent option if the program is not too complicated. But it can take time to locate the missing DLL file and reinstall the application.

Another solution is to use Windows Update. This method can be used if the DLL file is missing because of an outdated or corrupt system component. However, this method can’t solve the problem if the file is deleted from the Recycle Bin. If it is still impossible, you can try to recover the files using a data recovery tool. It can even repair corrupted files after they’re recovered.
