I have located a lot of .dll files on my PC and they are vital part of the system. How can I open a .dll file? I want to see the contents of a .dll without which a application cannot work. For example, Banished requires VideoDX-11.dll in order to run. Can I modify the .dll file for any other applications?
Is there a way to open a .dll file?
