    what is Difference between DLL and EXE?

    An exe is an executible program. A DLL (Dynamic Link Library) is a file that can be loaded and executed by programs dynamically.
    EXE is a Self Executable File where as DLL is not self executable file,To run DLL file we need a exe file.

    what is Difference between DLL and EXE?

    DLL
    It is Dynamic Link Library that is used as a part of EXE or other DLLs. It cannot be run independently.
    It runs in the application process memory, so it is called as in-process component.
    It can be reused in an application.
    It does not have a main function.


    EXE
    It is an executable file, which can be run independently.
    EXE is an out-process component, which means that it runs in a separate process.
    It cannot be reused in an application.
    It has a main function.
