aw.dll - What is aw.dll?

aw.dll File Description:

The aw.dll module is a core component of the Active Worlds SDK (Software Development Kit). The aw.dll module is charged with the task of implementing the whole of the Active Worlds client/server protocol. In order to develop an application with the Active Worlds SDK, all the programmer has to do is write a program in 'C' and include the header file aw.h in it, while linking it to the aw.lib import library. The process compiled in such a way, can be run from any computer connected via network to the 'Active Worlds Universe' as long as the aw.dll module is available on that computer. Developers can avoid dealing with the aw.dll module by linking the aw.h file to the static library file, aw_static.lib.

If the aw.dll module is missing it can cause programs to stop responding or lose certain functionality, as is seen in the case of Autoroute and Mappoint, described below.
