Missing DLL files.

by tripinthehead420 / November 18, 2003 10:41 AM PST

Recently, I tried to load a demo game from a CD, Command and Conquer: Generals.
Anyhow, right after i tried to play it, it told me some DLL files were missing.
then i tried to play a song with Winamp. More missing DLL files.
Diablo 2, anything that has to do with my video or any games, has missing DLL files.
I don't even know what these things do!, but now i have to replace `em for a bunch of files i never had backups for?

please help me!

Start by telling what OS, a few names of the files and such.

Some of the OS's have ways to repair missing files. Some of the programs require you to have installed DirectX of a latest version.
