Why is it important to register a DLL file in Windows?
- so that any program needing to use that specific program code can locate the file
- so that the operating system can be restored
- so that the computer can be restored to factory settings
- so that copyright laws are not violated when computer images are made
A dynamic link library (DLL) contains program code that a number of applications may need to access in order to run. In order for programs to find the DLLs that they require, the DLLs must be registered. To create a registry entry for a DLL that failed to register when it was installed, use the regsvr32 Windows command.
