Elbyvcdshell.dll Computer Error Solution
The elbyvcdshell.dll file is described as the CloneCD Close Tray component created by the company Elaborate Bytes. It contains a method to close the tray of the physical or virtual CDROM drives. The elbyvcdshell.dll file was created because there is no registry trick for adding such an option in the context menu of Windows Explorer.
Also none of Windows Dynamic Link Libraries contain such a method to close the tray. Only the opposite or the eject tray function is available.
The elbyvcdshell.dll file handles both displaying the option of ‘Close Tray’ when you right click a drive letter in the Windows Explorer and performing the action when clicked. The elbyvcdshell.dll module’s Close Tray function moved into Virtual Clone Drive which is a software also made by Elaborate Bytes that extends the number of CD drives by creating virtual drives in the system.
The elbyvcdshell.dll file function of closing the tray makes the most sense here because there is no convenient way to close a virtual tray by hand.
To close the tray of the drive the elbyvcdshell.dll module needs some access to the hardware. Running on 32-bit versions of the Windows Operating System (9x/NT/2000/XP) it uses the elbycdio.dll file or the access layer which is therefore required as well. Older versions of the CloneCD software add the Close Tray component automatically to the Right Click menu on CD drives.
There are two versions of the CloneCD software in the market one made by Elaborate Bytes and one made by Slysoft. In the version made by Elaborate Bytes the elbyvcdshell.dll file is present whereas in the Slysoft version it is not. The elbyvcdshell.dll file needs a special driver and doesn’t work if the low level driver is not installed.
The elbyvcdshell.dll file is a useful component that will allow the user to open or close The CDROM drives from the Windows system tray. For those who have their CDROM drives located in an inconvenient place the elbyvcdshell.dll module proves to be very helpful because trying to refresh the CD reading from the drive would be more convenient especially if the disc reading is always failing.

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.
