The module dhcpssvc.dll is part of the operating system Microsoft Windows. It is also known as the DHCP server service which is a very important service for computers connected to a wide area network or local area network.
DHCP refers to Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol. It can either be a client or a server protocol that provides an Internet protocol address to an Internet Protocol host. It also provides other configurations such as the default gateway and the subnet mask.
The dhcpssvc.dll module contains only one external type function and that function is ServiceEntry. It also calls functions from other DLL files. It includes the files msvcrt.dll, ntdll.dll, icmp.dll, rpcrt4.dll, wsock32.dll, advapi32.dll, kernel32.dll and user32.dll.
The module dhcpssvc.dll also contains one message table. The message table contains 89 message strings. The messages are for both successful and failed initialization of the DHCP Server Service. Samples of these messages are “The DHCP server has initialized and is ready,” “The specified IpRange already exists” and “The specified IpRange is too small.”
Once the DHCP server has been set up it can be configured to run during the startup process of the computer. Once it is initialized during startup it will run as a background process or a service.
The module dhcpssvc.dll is really not a necessary part of the computer especially if it is not connected to the wide area network or a local area network. But for computers that are part of any network the module dhcpssvc.dll becomes necessary for the system along with its network to run properly.

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.
