How to Edit DLL Files

1 What's DLL File?

DLL stands for "Dynamic Link Library". Though there are different explanations given from Microsoft, this one could be the better one:
"A Dynamic Link Library (DLL) is a file of code containing functions that can be called from other executable code (either an application or another DLL). Programmers use DLLs to provide code that they can reuse and to parcel out distinct jobs. Unlike an executable (EXE) file, a DLL cannot be directly run. DLLs must be called from other code that is already executing."

2 When need to edit DLL files?

To edit DLL files is actually not as easy as you think. They are written in many languages, such as C, C++, C#, Delphi, Visual Basic, Visual Basic.Net, and so forth. So you are required a bit of computer professional skills when editing it.
• You attempt to hack it to do something other that what it was intended to do.
• You want to extract Icons from the DLLs.
• You want to reverse engineer an application.
• You are a geek and want to see what it looks like inside.
If you have the reason as above, you can try to edit the DLL file, or you are not supposed to do so. And you'd better ask technicians for help or use professional and easy DLL file editor, if you are a computer newbie.
