Compatui.dll Error Problems Solved Today
The compatui.dll is a component that provides the Windows shell interface for users to set compatibility modes on an application. Windows Shell refers to the operating system of Windows that provide access to services of a kernel. As operating systems are updated and become more advanced some applications get outmoded and become incompatible with the new operating system.
To resolve this dilemma the compatui.dll component was designed to configure older versions of applications that are loaded into a computer to run in Windows XP.
The compatui.dll component is responsible for extending information about the version of the operating system, populating list of common programs, collecting application information and retrieving compatibility data of an application, then sending the application compatibility data and checking if the application is compatible with the operating system. The file compatui.dll then executes Dr. Watson to clean up errors of older applications.
Finally it runs the Program Compatibility Wizard that helps the user configure older programs to run on Windows XP when there are issues that come up after executing Dr. Watson on applications.
The compatui.dll component also contains four bitmaps and nine question mark icons. It also contains three string tables that pertain to processes that the compatui.dll file performs while running. Lastly 23 folders are created containing tempfilelisttemplate.html and 24 stating information on associated files and dependencies.

What is a DLL?
Your operating system comes pre-installed with Microsoft DLL’s and most third party programs also install DLL’s.
DLL (Dynamic Link Library) is Microsoft’s implementation of the shared library concept. Meaning there’s a DLL library on your computer and each DLL can be shared among different Microsoft and third party programs. This shared library method helps your computer run faster by having fewer operations running at the same time.
When a DLL is missing or corrupt it may show an error message and programs may fail or crash.
Because DLL’s are shared, one missing or corrupt DLL may affect multiple programs on your computer.
