  • I searched technet and found the following articles

    - KB925902 which referenced the hotfix for KB935448

     

    This should solve the issue if you have a Realtek audio card.

     

    *** Edited to include link to fix ***

     

    The solution can be downloaded here.

  • Thanks - the reference was good but the link wasn't -I was told "wrong language"
    Friday, April 6, 2007 1:52 PM
  • Great - problem solved - thanks.  I also have a Realtek sound card
    Friday, April 6, 2007 1:57 PM
  • Thanks a lot, this type of error messages is annoying since you wonder what went wrong.

    The HotFix indicated cleared the message.

    Using Google seems to be a good way to find out about such problems.

  • By doing the restore, will only delay the fix of the problem and it will take longer than just installing the update.

    - click on the link here and you can solve the problem rather than experience the same issue again.

    - The issue was with a Windows update security fix.  So if you are set to automatically update you will keep experiencing the issue.

     

    The solution can be downloaded here.

  • I have this problem after I installed some update for MS Windows XP Home Edition. I think it's the same error with Krynnite's one.

     

    Here is error msg:

     

    "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."

     

    Someone, please help me to sort this out.

     

    Thanks.

    Friday, April 6, 2007 3:05 PM
  • Yes, that is the exact error message this fix was designed for.

  • Thanks buddy. I got the same error message, and was wondering if my family memebers did something stupid which caused the error. I searched on google, found the thread, and downloaded the hotfix. Now it should work.! Thanks.
    Friday, April 6, 2007 3:43 PM
  • Many thanks for the solution to the problem that has had me re-installing W XP home amongst other attempted solutions. I thought in the end that I had a memory fault.

     

    My Realtek audio "card" (on the Motherboard) has never worked anyway, but short of taking a hammer to the thing I can't think how to be rid of it or make it work!

     

    Of course there may be a driver somewhere ...

  • I had the same message as you but found that the hotfix needs to be in the same language as the operating system.  You can select the language before downloading.  Mine then worked fine.
    Friday, April 6, 2007 6:48 PM
  • I had the same error as Krynnite this morining,

     

    Like everyone else I had no idea what the hell was going on this morning when I booted up and got this error message.

     

    Although eveything seemed to be working OK, it was annoying.

     

    A simple google search on HHCTRL.OCX lead to this thread, and Craigs link for the hotfix worked like a charm.

     

    After reading about this I believe my error was caused trying to access help in a win 95 game I was playing on my laptop

    in  backward compatability mode.

     

    Thanks for posting the link for the hotfix.

     

    Regards

  • Thanks Craig.  I knew it was a microsoft update thing as the error message appeared right after that ran, but your link saved me loads of angst trying to put it right!

     

    Much appreciated.

  • The message ( RTHDCPL.EXE - Illegal System DLL Relocation) I got is:

    The system DLL user32.dll was relocated in memory. The application will not run properly. The relocation occured 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.

    What do you make of this?

    Sunday, April 8, 2007 7:15 PM
  • Just a quick thank you Craig for saving me some time. The link seems like its work for me.

    I know in future if something goes wrong look on google first.

     

    Sunday, April 8, 2007 8:37 PM
  • I hade the same the message " RTHDCPL.EXE-Illegal System DLL Relocation" as you have.  Following the link and suggestion from Craig and you will be OK.

     

    Many thanks to Craig for finding the fix.  He has saved me a lot of time and frustration.

  • Hi Craig -

     

    Great results - thank you!

     

    Quick question - my mom is having the same problem with the HHCTRL.ocx - but she is unable to even access the internet now (it is extremely slow and usually hangs).  Can't open a problem currently - it would appear that she has a virus but she has Norton - is there a way to wipe out the hard drive and reinstall or perhaps you have another recommendation?

     

    Perhaps you can provide some assistance....?

     

    Thanks in advance,

  • Hey Craig. Thanks for the help. I installed this fix and the problem was gone. Until 3 minutes later. I lost my sound a few weeks back and could not figure out why because my microsoft sounds work but when I started ITUNES it said I had a audio problem. Then I started to get the error message every time I started the computer and being the dumb arse that I am didnt put 2 and 2 together. So I installed this update, the sound was back and I could here my tunes again. But 5 minutes later. The same problem arrised. I reinstalled the update, restarted, and the same thing happened. Any thoughts and why this would happen?

     

    Thanks

  • Patch worked for me as well.

    I had problems to start the IBM access connections application on my T41 notebook causing the described error.

    Thanks a lot.

    Langid=1&PNid=14&PFid=23&Level=4&Conn=3&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false"§

    combine the two above and you'll get the page drop the §""§'s and you'll be good to go
    this of course is for all of you who don't have working realtek cards this might fix it for
    you and if not eh it'll cause a error whats new microsoft whats new

    it solved my problem quite well also allows for multi-positioned speakers
    testing as well i just found the previous site on the hhctrl.ocx file needed
    to know as i installed a proggy and it gave me the error enjoys all

  • What happens when you have a newer service pack, and this fix won't install? 

    I have no help files. 

    I keep trying to reinstall and "re-register" the hhctrl.ocx file and still no help files. 

    Can someone please help me? 

    I have Windows XP.
    Office 2007
    Mozilla Firefox

    Thanks,
    Candy

  • HI CANDY

     

    HOTFIX DONT WORKED FOR ME TOO

    I M USING WINDOWS XP SERVICE PACK 3 ON MY LAPTOP

     

    SO SIMPLE SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM IS  SEARCH IN  GOOGLE FOR "HHCTRL.OCX"   AND DOWNLOAD IT FOR FREE  OR DOWNLOAD FROM FOLLOWING LINK:

     

    http://www.ocxdump.com/download-ocx-files_new.php/ocxfiles/H/HHCTRL.OCX/4.73.8412/download.html

     

    SAVE IT ON DESKTOP

     

     

    NOW  OPEN      WINDOWS--> SYSTEM 32 FOLDER AND PASTE THE DOWNLOADED .OCX FILE

     

    REPLACE THE PREVIOUS WITH THIS ONE N EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE.
