Gdi32full.dll is a type of Dynamic Link Library (DLL) file. Dynamic Link Library files such as gdi32full.dll are essential “guides” that store information and instructions that executable (EXE) files – such as HelpPane.exe – should follow. These files were created so that multiple programs (such as Microsoft Office Access 2010) could share the same gdi32full.dll file, saving valuable disk space and improving computer efficiency.
Unfortunately, what makes DLL files so convenient and efficient also makes them extremely vulnerable to problems. If a generic DLL file is lost or corrupted, it may produce a “runtime” error message. Runtime is self-explanatory; this means that these errors occur when gdi32full.dll tries to be loaded when launching Microsoft Office Access 2010, or, in some cases, when it is already running.
What causes Gdi32full.dll is missing error?
- The cause of gdi32full.dll error can be third-party programs, so it is recommended to minimize the number of running programs and services.
- Another cause of this error is damaged or missing registry files. This problem can be solved with registry scanning utilities because it is impossible to manually identify and replace the exact registry file that is invalid. In addition, it is very risky to modify registry files, as a simple error in them can cause your computer to malfunction.
- An outdated or missing graphics driver can also show up as an error in the gdi32full.dll file since this is a component of Microsoft’s graphics device interface. The most reasonable solution to this error is to update your video card driver, but you may also need to update other drivers to remove this error from your system completely.
