Stores a list of dynamic-link libraries (DLLs) that can be used by both 16-bit Windows applications and by 32-bit Windows applications. When a 16-bit Windows application requests a DLL that appears on this list, the system loads the DLL from the System32 directory, rather than using the application's version of the DLL.

User.dll, Gdi.dll, and System.drv are not included in this list because they are required Windows 2000 system files and their location cannot be changed.

Tip Image Tip

To replace or upgrade a DLL, delete the DLL name from this list. This causes the system to search system directories for the new DLL.
