    Windows host process (Rundll32) has stopped working

    Hi, I've installed Windows Vista RC2. Last week I installed Ulead VideoStudio
    10+ and Ulead CD&DVD PictureShow 4. Since then every time I open an explorer
    windows in a folder with an MPG file, a message box with the legend "Windows
    host process (Rundll32) has stopped working" appears.
    I think it's because Windows can't show me a preview of the file in the
    icon. Anybody knows how I can fix it? Thank you very much...

    RE: Windows host process (Rundll32) has stopped working

    I have a couple of programs that installed fine (and were labelled OK running
    upgrade advisor before clean install) in RC2 (5744) but I noticed once those
    programs were running, about 10-15mins into it I get the same Rundll32
    stopped working message and the program has to shut down. I tried a few
    things to fix it with no resolution.

    That was a show stopper for me.

    I installed Vegas 7.0 and encounter similar problems with Rundll32. I knew
    not to install the Sony Media Manager as this portion of the app relies on a
    version of SQL that is not compatible with RC 2.

    Vegas will run (though I haven't test all aspects of the app) but I need to
    cancel out of a couple of Rundll32 error messages before it will fully load.

    I have no problem with Explorer windows and MPEG or other video files and

    Windows host process (Rundll32) has stopped working

    I am getting this error when I try and empty my recycle bin. I am running
    Windows Vista Ultimate (clean install) RTM x86. Is there a fix? I have read
    other threads. Other people have had this same problem. No one seems to
    know why or offer some sort of fix. I would appreciate a bug fix. It is
    simply annoying. This could prove serious when released.

    **Warning** if you do not have a solution, or are not smart enough to
    understand, do not answer this post**

    Update: When I click on 'Check online for a solution and close the program'
    ( I do not have any programs opened ) the window reappears multiple times in
    a frenzy until the recycle bin is closed. 'View problem details' reveals:
    Problem signature:

    This is extremely annoying. Its disturbing that Microsoft has released this
    OS in this shape. I have found other bugs as well, but up until now I have
    found solutions in this forum.

    Look, all I am trying to do is raise awareness here that Vista Ultimate has
    a serious error. I posted the complete error here for anyone qualified that
    might offer some insight. I wanted to eliminate garbage responses, no
    offense intended

    "Yes I do Rob. Nero 7.0. In fact, it is the version that is supposed to be
    compatible with Vista. I haven't had any other glicthes associated with
    burning disks.

    Re: Windows host process (Rundll32) has stopped working

    I have tried everything online to figure out on correcting this error. I don't have Nero from what I see. I need help big time I have Vista Ultimate. I have no idea what I have for a video program. My computer is a HP so I don't know what was installed.

    Hey, if you find a solution I'd like to know what it is. I have the
    same problem only mine says "Windows host process has stopped
    working'. It doesn't say anything about Rundell32. It says to update
    my HP printer driver to solve the ptoblem. I don't have a printer
    installed on my laptop.

    The faulting module, XWDkernel.dll, is part of WindowsDock software, not
    Vista. You should be directing your query to their support.

    I have been to every forum and I am a web designer/developer I have never
    not been able to fix my own computer issues, than again I am against vista

    crashed know Im crashing daily. Please help me I am not worthy.

    It says it is caused by this file.
