How to Register DLL Files on 64 Bit

Save

A Dynamic Link Library (DLL) is a library that contains bits of data necessary to run certain programs and applications. Your processor (CPU) is either 32-bit or 64-bit. The main difference between these processors is that the 64-bit processor can handle larger amounts of Random Access Memory (RAM) than the 32-bit processor. Nevertheless, most of the functions, including registering a DLL are done the same way whether you have a 32-bit or 64-bit processor.

Windows Vista or 7

  • Click "Start" and type "cmd" into the "Search" box and press "Enter." The Command Prompt opens.

  • Type "regsvr32 name.dll" into the Command Prompt and press "Enter." Note that "name.dll" should be replaced with the name of the DLL that you want to register. For example, if you want to register the iexplore.dll, type "regsvr32 iexplore.dll."

  • Close the Command Prompt and restart the computer.

Windows XP

  • Click "Start" and "Run." The Run tool opens.

  • Type "cmd" into the box next to "Open" and click "OK." The Command Prompt opens.

  • Type "regsvr32 name.dll" into the Command Prompt and press "Enter." Note that "name.dll" should be replaced with the name of the DLL that you want to register. For example, if you want to register the iexplore.dll, type "regsvr32 iexplore.dll."

  • Close the Command Prompt and restart the computer.
