DLL files are some binary files that contain code or icons etc. The user cannot execute these files directly, but the applications that run in the system can. Applications will use these DLL files when needed, and if any DLL files are missing, the application will not run properly.

We recommend that you first try restarting your computer and making sure that you have the latest graphics drivers and DirectX drivers. Installing the latest drivers will probably fix the issue. If not, follow the steps below.
