DLL download


Junior member
Morning all.

Have tried to download a DLL ( whatever that is !! ) and keep getting message " error loading DLL" , and on one occasion got " error getting function address "
Any ideas for remedy ?

Hi Ken,

Persumably this is a Sierra one? What dll and from where? Many of them have more than one download site. If I have it already I'm happy to send you a copy.


dll file location

When downloading dll files they usually have to be placed into a specific directory and normally it is either in the directory of the program being run or one of either

You could try copying the dll and placing it in all 3 locations and seeing if it works.

Good Luck

Helen and JT have partly answered this. However, if it's a Sierra DLL it needs to be in the main Sierra program directory.

The error messages sound very like those that Sierra emits when you make an error with the call to the DLL function.

If it is Sierra, in the technical study settings dialog you need to put into the DDL name box
