Virtual COM Port (VCP) functions are to secure file transfers at the Windows command prompt. VCP is an important part of the secure toolkit for system administrators and webmasters. The Microsoft VCP version 7.0 which is msvcp100.dll is a compressed module enabling a quick and easy way to transfer a file or group of files. The msvcp100.dll module can be called to automate transfers with batch files or scripts.
The purpose of the msvcp100.dll file is to make the virtual COM port exhibit behavior that closely resembles that of a “real” COM port. A virtual COM port itself is a relatively simple software mechanism that can be implemented by the msvcp100.dll module program similar to that of a traditional COM port driver. The main hurdles however arise in the network connection to the device server and the behavior of the device server.
Applications use the msvcp100.dll file in association with other versions of the file like the msvcp100.dll library through a series of virtual COM ports as designed by the user. When the application opens the virtual COM port the msvcp100.dll module directs commands to make an IP network connection to a device server. This command is directed towards a specified IP address and TCP/UDP port number that corresponds to a remote device on the server.
The msvcp100.dll file for the Windows operating system is typically accessed using a control-panel style graphical user interface for creating virtual COM ports. The file also provides links in configuring settings for individual COM ports and locating global settings affecting all COM ports. The DLL msvcp100.dll module GUI typically includes displays of virtual COM port activity and various diagnostic aids.
The performance of a Virtual COM Port is assessed by both its functions and the network it uses to reach device servers. The performance drawbacks of simple implementations can be largely addressed by kernel-level drivers that avoid context switches. The Network packet losses or excessive packet times have strong effects on the file msvcp100.dll process and must be avoided.
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 msvcp100.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.
