Error Fix for gdi32.dll

The dynamic link library gdi32.dll for Graphical Device Interface is one of the subsystem standards which enable applications to use graphics and formatted text on both the video display and the printer.

The graphics device interface (GDI) provides functions and related structures that can be used to generate graphical output for displays, printers, and other devices. This application does not access the graphics hardware directly but instead the module gdi32.dll interacts with the drivers for such applications. By using the provided functions you can draw lines, curves, closed figures, paths, text, and bitmap images.

The color and style of the items you draw depends on the drawing objects that is, pens, brushes, and fonts that you create. You can use pens to draw lines and curves, brushes to fill the interiors of closed figures, and fonts to write text. The application creates a device context (DC) by using device context functions. The module gdi32.dll returns a device context handle which is used in subsequent calls to identify the device.

Using the handle, an application can retrieve information about the capabilities of the device such as its technology type (display, printer, or other device) and the dimensions and resolution of the display surface. With the module gdi.dll it allows low-cost printers to be built by printer manufacturers because all the page composition is done in software application.

A graphics device interface (GDI) enabled printer is a print processor that uses software to do all the print processing instead of requiring the printer hardware to do it. It works by rendering an image to a bitmap on the host computer and then sending the bitmap to the printer. A Win printer uses the module gdi.dll to prepare the output which is then passed to the printer driver for further processing and then only afterwards to the printer itself.

What is a DLL?

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.

Recommended fix if you are experiencing gdi32.dll errors:

DLL files are important parts of your operating system and many programs require them to function. When these files become damaged or are missing it causes poor system performance and system crashes. 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.
