Getting "SDL.dll not found" error

If you are getting SDL.dll not found error such as the one shown on the left(click on it to enlarge it), then follow the below mentioned steps to resolve the issue.


First of all download the SDL.dll file from HERE.

Now copy the SDL.dll file to the location
c:\windows\system32 (for Windows XP/Vista/7)
c:\winnt\system32 (for Windows NT/2000)
and then restart the computer.

If still, this does not work then try the following:
open RUN:
Click Start-->Click RUN(for 7 type run in the search bar below)-->type  regsvr32 SDL.dll as shown below

If you still have problems registering the dll file, it is probably due to the 64 bit Windows you are using. To resolve that issue check the link mentioned below-
