.DLL File Extension

Dynamic Link Library

System File
A DLL (dynamic link library) is a collection of small program functions. These small programs can then be used by other larger applications simultaneously.

For example, a business has an Accounting application. The developers who created this accounting package did not wish to write a complex currency conversion function, so they gained permission to use another companies conversion function, which is stored within a DLL.

The accounting application simply calls the relevant function within the DLL with a set of parameters (E.g from currency, from value, to currency) and receives the output (E.g converted value).

You don't have to download the extensions. For the maplestory, I think they will fix that when they update it, or you just have to re-download it.
