Changing Lanes

After 10 years at Create IT, I have decided to take on a new challenge at a different company.
Since this blog is hosted in Create IT’s blog platform, I have created a new personal blog where I will be posting from now on. This is my final post in this blog address but the existing 10 years of content will remain here.

I’ll see you around!

Erro: Illegal System DLL Relocation

If, when your Windows XP SP2 boots up, you get a popup with the following error:

RTHDCPL.EXE – Illegal System DLL Relocation

The system DLL user32.dll was relocated in memory. The application will not run properly. The relocation occurred because the DLL C:\Windows\System32\Hhctrl.ocx occupied an address range reserved for Windows system DLLs. The vendor supplying the DLL should be contacted for a new DLL.

Then probably, you have Realtek HD Audio Control Panel installed and had your windows updated recently. The issue was already assumed by Microsoft. You can get additional information and download a patch here:


Yesterday I received the confirmation of my last Microsoft Certified Technology Specialist certification. I'm already counting four:

  • BizTalk Server 2006: Custom Applications
  • Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007: Configuration
  • Microsoft Windows SharePoint Server 3.0: Application Development
  • Microsoft Office SharePoint Server 2007: Application Development

The idea is not collecting certifications, but to assess if my personal investment in these areas is paying off. If, with that investment, I can bring added value to my company and its clients, the better 🙂
