You can't. DLL file ( Dynamic Link Library ) can only be opened by an executable ( EXE ) or compiler.

You don't open DLL files directly. They are not programs or documents, but libraries that programs use to perform specific tasks.

DLL files are part of a program. They are opened by the program that needs them.

If you understand DLL files as series of instructions to a computer that has a printer or other attached device to communicate effectively then any text reading or word processing program will open and then read DLL files

Most programs use .DLL files. The one you installed yourself is usually in the program's folder. Right click the dll and choose "Open file location" and look for a .exe file. If you want to know more about a specific dll you can open the dll in notepad, often you can read some of the letters and figuring out what program/game etc. It's for. For other .dll files you can search up on the name or location to find its origin. dll files should often be left alone.

Programs on Mac OS X do not normally use .dll files (some Microsoft products for the Mac do). Instead they use .dylib files, which have a completely different structure.

A DLL (dynamic link library) file is a file used by a specific application to communicate with devices inside or attached to the computer. DLL files aren't meant to be opened separately from the program they belong to. When you load the program the DLL file belongs to, that program will automatically load the DLL file if it needs it.

c# is the language for developing .dll files

No. dll files are "Dynamic Link Libraries" and are used to store program code. They don't operate as stand alone programs but they are called by other programs.

You can open the .dll files by using the program that called ResHach and you can download it from the link : from CNET

It is not reccomended that you open a .dll file as these generally are system files vital for your computer and it's programs to work. NEVER MODIFY A DLL FILE as this can cause your system to become unstable and crash beyond repair

You cannot really "read" it, since it is all basically a bunch of letters, numbers, and shapes. If you really want to, right click on the .DLL file, then choose the "Open with" option. Then look for notepad. When you find notepad, click it. That will then open the DLL file for you to view.

well you cant read them so i do not know???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

if you are unable to search the .dll file. It may be they are in hidden file.first un-hide the all my computer > tools>folder option>view> show hidden file and folder>apply>okNow try to search the dll file by the search optionstart>search>the the name of file. and press enterwhy do you need to know what it is 1. its a dynamic loaded library all applications use this as a library of data to find information basically dll files store a bunch of info for a certain applicationWhere can you find .dll files on the internet to replace missing ones on your computer? Whilst some software applications strictly forbid the distribution of .dll files, some software applications (most commonly open source software) do not disallow .dll files to be distributed.If you're looking for .dll files on the Internet to replace missing or corrupted windows .dll files, that would be against the software licensing terms Microsoft have in place. This would also go for other companies as well.Normally, you can just search the name of the dll. So Google .dll download.

Dll files are stored every dude. Did a program say that a dll failed? or a dll has an error? or cant be found? go in the My Computer and go in your hard drive. programs and files. go to the broke down program. there is were the dll would MOST likely be. But i would download a pach for the program. eather that, re download and reinstall the program.

No Download files are files that you have downloaded, normally from the interent. They can be of any type (e.g. .doc, .mp3, .dll, .exe, etc.) .dll files are Dynamic Link Libraries that are used by programs installed on your computer. Nearly all are needed for your programs to run correctly. Technically, you can download a .dll file but they aren't the same thing :) Downloading a file is something you do TO a file (like read, modify, delete, etc.). A dll file is a type of file.

The .dll files are hidden since they are so important to the operating system. However, if you want to take a look at them, click on Search, then type in *.dll tell it to look at hidden files. They will be listed and it will show what folders they are in. They are in several different folders such as i386.

You cannot view DLL files under normal circumstances. These are regarded as critical system files and the operating system will keep these hidden from view. If you wish to view the files anyway, do the following:Open up My Computer.Click on Tools in the top menu bar.Click on Folder Options.In the window that opens, click on the tab named View.Scroll down the list till you come to the option "Show hidden files and folders". Click on this option to select it. The option just above this option (Do not show hidden files and folders) will become deselected automatically. Relax, it is normal.Uncheck the box below these options which says "Hide file extensions for known file types". This will display the extensions of all files in your PC, allowing you to easily identify the DLL files.Click on Apply, and then on OK.Now navigate to the drive partition where Windows is installed.Open the Windows folder. Inside it you will find a folder named System32.Open the System32 folder. You will be able to see all DLL files of your Windows OS.If you cannot spot the DLL files at first sight, right click on an empty space inside the System32 folder. A small menu will pop up. Select the option "Arrange Icons By", and then click on the option "Type".Now Windows will arrange the DLL files in the folder side by side, allowing you to view those more comfortably.You are free to view the DLL files as much as you want. It will not harm your PC in any way. You can also open the DLLs using a text editor like Notepad. However, do not attempt to modify any DLL file, unless you know what you are doing. Modifying DLL files may corrupt the files, rendering Windows inoperative.
