Download Error Fix for adsldp.dll

Active Directory typically calls on the Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) to communicate with LDAP servers. This process is brought about by the adsldp.dll module.

The LDAP can be used as the primary means to access Active Directory and maximize all of Active Directory’s capabilities. The LDAP allows clients on multiple platforms to access the directory services of AD by using TCP/IP. For practical use the Active Directory Service Interface works best with LDAP directories as it fully supports all the features offered by AD.

A main function embedded in the adsldp.dll file is the prevention of naming collisions. Naming collisions usually occur when multiple objects are accessed from a directory service. This results in system errors and corrupted data.

The adsldp.dll file calls on the ADsPath function in the Active Directory Services Interface to implement a binding string. Binding strings prevents naming collision as it uniquely identifies an ADSI object on a directory service. ADSI objects exist within the context of the namespace of the LDAP. Thus part of the syntax of an ADsPath name is provider-specific.

The provider names in this case the LDAP are used to access the default provider namespace. When binding to LDAP ADSI binds to a container that contains the domain object currently logged on. Typically binding strings can be applied for a single directory service provider or across multiple directory service providers.

In using the LDAP provider the functions embedded in the adsldp.dll file used to implement the ADsPath can be specified in an X.500 distinguished name (DN) form beginning with the CN tag. It can similarly be specified in its hierarchical inverse starting with the O tag. The form used in the initial ADsPath or binding string determines the order of the tags. It should be noted though that syntax restrictions could occur due to namespace requirements in LDAP.

Active Directory is also capable of binding to an object using several other types of binding strings such as a COM globally unique identifier (GUID) or a security identifier (SID).

Recommended fix if you are experiencing adsldp.dll error messages:

DLL (Dynamic Link Library) files contain computer code and resources that can be used by multiple programs at the same time. This uses less system memory and helps your computer system run more efficiently. DLL files give program developers the ability to reuse code to add features to several programs without the need to write new code for each program.

There are many programs that require DLL files to function properly so when one of them is damaged or missing it will cause program crashes and poor system performance.

To fix these problems the user must replace the damaged file with a valid working version. If a working version cannot be found the user may perform a reinstallation of their operating system.
