Most of the users, who are using Windows Operating system, sooner or later starting getting those annoying errors messages related with dll files. You may get some error message like “sdkencryptedappticket.dll is missing” “steam_api.dll is missing” or “storm.dll diablo 2” when you try to launch some program or the .dll loading error might appear just as you startup your computer.
Usually the dll is missing errors appear because the program is dependent on some dll-file and it is missing or corrupted. This may happen, because multiple programs can use the same dll-file and overwrite it. In some cases, dll loading errors could indicate a registry problem, a virus or malware issue or even a hardware failure.
What is a DLL?
DLL stands for Dynamic Link Library, which in short means it’s a library of information, or functions, that can be linked to from different programs that make use of the information in the DLL. It is dynamic in the way that it is a repository with often several hundred functions, and the program linking to it can make use of any of them, or all, as required. The benefit is that programs do not have to include every single function in its own files, instead using the shared DLL, thereby reducing the program size.
Why do my DLL files suddenly disappear?
DLL files can be shared between many different programs. If you remove a program using an uninstall utility it might remove all files it installed during the installation process, including DLL files shared with other programs.
An install or upgrade might have failed, leaving out some needed files.
This might also happen if you manually copy the files of a program from one location to another, without using the proper setup process.

Step 2 : In this step, the application is installed to the directory that .DLL error, .DLL file, copy, then restart the computer.
Step 3 : In this step, you install .DLL running the file, you receive the error, fix .DLL. Do not forget to restart your computer.

- There might be multiple reasons as to why you receive an 0xc000007b error when trying to run an application on a Windows computer.
- This error comes from mixing up 32bit environment with 64bit one.
For example, if a 32bit application tries to load a 64bit DLL-file, it would cause this error.
- Make sure that you have the correct version of the program for your Windows environment.
