On logging in, I see error, "EAccessViolation" in a window titled "Alcwzrd" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Ever since I first installed WHS and logged in, I see an error pop up, "EAccessViolation" in a small window with the title, "Alcwzrd".  What does it mean and what do I do to fix it?  As far as I know, it has not caused any problems, but I've reached a point now where I have the leisure to fix it.

  • Alcwzrd seems to be a program for the Realtek Audio drives. As WHS has the audio disabled, I'm not surprised. There isn't really anything you can do but uninstall the Realtek programs

  • You could also try to open Services in Control Panel/Administrative Tools and adjust the Windows Audio service from Disabled to Autostart and start it.
    It's not a supported scenario, and if you do not need sound on the server, it is better to leave the sound card without a driver (and disable sound in the Bios), which is a potential destabilizer of the system.

    The Windows Audio Service was on Automatic and not Disabled.  I tried disabling the service and that didn't work.  I tried removing the drivers and on the reboot, disabled the onboard sound in the BIOS and that worked.
