On DLL-Files.com, type the entire or partial name of the DLL file in the search field, and click Go. Alternatively, click on the first letter of the file, and click on the corresponding link. Click on the Download ZIP File button to avoid having to install software that includes ads and third-party offers. Once the file is downloaded, use the built-in archive extractor utility, or download a free extractor, such as 7-Zip, and extract the file located inside the archive.

Right-click on the DLL file, select the Copy or Cut option, navigate to the default system directory located on the primary hard drive or partition, right-click on empty space, and click Paste. If prompted to overwrite existing DLL files, click Yes, but create a backup of the original files beforehand. Restart the computer to have the operating system start utilizing the file. If this solution fails, or if it solves the problem only partially, reinstall the software that fails to run due to the missing DLL files.
