Windows 7: .DLL Question

27 Nov 2009   #1

Windows 7 64bit
.DLL Question


Have been trying to get an older program that ran fine under XP to run under Windows7.

Although the Setup.exe didn't seem to work directly, I have had some luck in having part(s) of the program work after playing around with the Windows 7 compatibility modes.

Program came on 2 Floppies.

Copied the Floppies into new PC with Windows 7, and put in a single Folder.

There are a few .dll files

Should these be "put" anywhere (else), or "Registered" (an old XP term) ?
If so, how please ?

Thanks for help.

It's only one, and shows as:


Called an "Application Extension"

Thanks again,

Hmmm, from my experience i dont think you should place it anywhere, but i'm not a tech expert.

Hi Bob,

What is this program? Can you zip up the files off each floppy separately and include them in your reply so that we can have a look at them.
