Description
Application popup:<application name> - <message>
Comments
 
This is a very generic message. Any application that generates a pop-up message using the Windows Application Pop-up interface will create such event log entries. The content of the message varies widely and this message may provide information on the cause of the error. Typically event ID 26 itself does not help in troubleshooting the problems that generated such events so one should look for other events pointing to this problem.

- Message: "Windows - No Disk: There is no disk in the drive.  Please insert a disk into drive" - From a newsgroup post: "Try cleaning the recent documents folders".

For some reason, the user had run the Eudora utility that installed a non-Microsoft MAPI32.dll. I was able to find a "good" copy of the .DLL and when I replaced the offender, this message went away". Several newsgroup posts suggests that Mozilla can also replace the MAPI32.DLL file during its installation proccess.
- Application: svchost.exe, error: "The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000142)" - From a newsgroup post: "Might be worthwhile to review MS KB article ME824422".
- Application: RTHDCPL.EXE, error: “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” - This error message was displayed immediately after startup on a Windows XP Pro SP2 system. This problem started on April 5, 2007 when the machines were turned on for first time of the day. The problem manifested itself with errors caused by Cisco CallManager Agent. Looking at recently released Microsoft critical updates I found one released on April 3, 2007 that had modified User32.dll. Uninstalling update ME925902 seems to have cleared up the error message.
- Message: "RunDLL32 entry point not found. Procedure IcfDisconnect could not be located in DLL HNetCfg.dll" - See ME913409 for a hotfix applicable to Microsoft Windows Server 2003.
Message: "Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library Buffer overrun detected!" - This kept occurring in a Small Business Server 2003 with CRM 3.0 installed.

The only change I can remember making just before this started happening was to add 512MB of RAM to bring the total up to 1GB of RAM. I think this appears because I do not have enough space on my HDD to accommodate the new memory size when the computer goes into hibernation".

- Application: sqlservr.exe, error: "Entry Point Not Found" - See ME303034.

To resolve this problem look for an old NT 4 policy that has an entry of "**del", which is to delete a single entry. After removing the problematic policy, the problem should be resolved".
