I really hate how these updates seem to happen like monthly now. I understand Microsoft uses it to cut down on piracy, but I really hate when their updates ask me over and over to reboot.

Drawing Animator Toy for Tablet PC

Microsoft has several PowerToys for Windows XP Tablet PC, but this one is probably the worst one. You draw in a ugly picture frame and as soon as you let pick up the pen the line starts to move until it hits a wall and bounces around. I was hoping this was going to be some kind of flipbook or something but it wasn’t.

Free your imagination and enjoy colorful animated images you create. The Drawing Animator Toy for Tablet PC lets you draw your own doodles and animate them, including picture rotation, bounce, and more.

RTHDCPL.EXE – Illegal System DLL Relocation.

I got this on my Tablet PC (running Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005).

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.


Microsoft has posted a fix for it.

This problem may occur after you install security update 925902 (MS07-017) and security update 928843 (MS07-008). The Hhctrl.ocx file that is included in security update 928843 and the User32.dll file that is included in security update 925902 have conflicting base addresses. This problem occurs if the program loads the Hhctrl.ocx file before it loads the User32.dll file.
