Drprov.dll Error Solution Guarantee
The drprov.dll module serves as the Network Provider for Microsoft Terminal Services allowing users to access applications and data on a remote computer over any type of network in particular over WAN or LAN. This module is Microsoft’s implementation of thin-client terminal server wherein Windows applications as well as the entire desktop of the computer running terminal services can be accessed from a remote client machine.
The drprov.dll file connects to a local device to a network resource through the NPAddConnection and the NPAddConnection3 functions. The latter function performs the same operation as NPAddConnection but in addition it lets you specify a handle to the window that should own any resulting dialog boxes and specify how the connection should be established.
The NPCancelConnection function breaks a network connection allowing the changes you make to the connection be remembered if the connection is to a device. But if the connection is to a remote network resource changes are not remembered.
Other functions of the drprov.dll module are the NPCloseEnum function that closes an enumeration and the NPOpenEnum function that opens an enumeration of network resources or existing connections. It must be called to obtain a valid handle for an enumeration. The NPEnumResource is the function that performs an enumeration based on a handle returned by NPOpenEnum.
The NPGetCaps function returns information on which services are supported on the network while the NPGetConnection function obtains information about a connection. The NPGetResourceInformation function separates the part of a network resource which is accessed through the WNet API from the part accessed through APIs specific to the resource type.
The NPGetResourceParent function of the drprov.dll file retrieves the parent of a specified network resource in the browse hierarchy which is typically called for resources that were returned by the same provider from prior calls to the NPEnumResource or NPGetResourceInformation. This DLL also provides the NPGetUniversalName function which retrieves the universal name of a network resource

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.
