File Extension LOCAL

.LOCAL File

File extension: LOCAL
File type: DLL Redirection


Notes about the LOCAL file extension:



Incorrect file associations could be the result of underlying issues within your PC system. As such it is highly recommended to scan your PC for invalid registry entries, unused processes and other unfavourable system settings to identify slowdown issues.

The LOCAL file type is primarily associated with 'DLL Redirection' by Microsoft Corporation.

'DLL Hell' is a term, know too well for comfort between Microsoft Windows developers. 'DLL Hell' causes grief and despair when two (2) separate and essentially incompatible versions of a DLL file with the same name are installed with one over-writing the other. This can cause the first program whose DLL got over-written to stop functioning.

Enter .local that redirects windows where to search for a specific dll. If a file application.exe.local exists, Windows will first look in that application's directory for the DLL file. If .local is a directory / folder, Windows will search in that directory instead of the application directory.
