Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.
A DLL is not usually a file you view it it used by a developer to send information needed to render a web page in a browser.

Here is a good link that explains the file format in detail.


It explains what company developed the file format, 
its uses and what programs can work with this file format.
Once open in one of the programs listed you may be able to 
save it in another format.

There are often additional programs and applications as well 
but this is a starting point to try.

If you have further questions let us know.

    Why people send you .dll file? .dll is a such a mechanism that designed for windows programs. It is necessary to know why you want to run/open this kind of file(s) on Mac OS.

    I use ebay and when I want to send a package, their only way to post a package using their online posting lately system means I need to be able to read and print their dll file.

    You may ask ebay to send the same in HTML format. Or call them (either toll free no/customer care) to fix this problem.

    Yes, I could try that for ebay, but that won't fix the same problem when other companies do the same thing. If dll files can be opened by Microsoft Word, why won't my Microsoft Word for machine applicants open it?
