Error Fix for msdat13.dll
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.
What is msdat13.dll?
The msdatl3.dll file is described as the Microsoft Data Access – OLE DB Implementation Support Routines. The msdatl3.dll file is a management code used by MDAC version 2.6 (Microsoft Data Access Components) which is required for other OLE DB components that ActiveX Data Objects use to register.
The Microsoft OLE DB is the technology that most Data Source technologies and ActiveX Data Objects use. The Microsoft OLE DB is both a specification and an implementation for building drivers for both aspects of the data access. The msdatl3.dll module is a provider helper which enables the implementation of a driver to access the data. The OLE DB enables providers to work against a conceptual framework and a code base in order to conform to a data object model that can be accessed by many applications. Through identical standardized interfaces every data source provider executes their access in the same manner with the ability to use a template to access any provider. The msdatl3.dll module helps implement those routines.
A simple OLE DB execution has two chief components. A data provider and a data consumer. The data provider is an application that answers back to a number of OLE DB calls to supply information to the data consumer. The msdatl3.dll module makes sure that the calls were executed properly by the provider. On the other hand a data consumer is a COM component or an application that uses the API or the application program interface of OLE DB to access a data source. It can be any application that has need of data access. Again it is the msdatl3.dll module that helps and make sure that it receives the correct data from the provider.
The separation of the implementation and the interface allows many OLE DB applications to rely on services without pertaining to their implementation. The msdatl3.dll module applies the support that is needed by the main libraries used by OLE DB.
Recommended fix if you are experiencing msdat13.dll error messages:
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.
