One reason for the GWUtil97.dll error is:

  • A DLL file that was needed for more than one program on your computer was accidentally deleted when you uninstalled an unused software program, and now the program that needs that file can’t find it.
  • A new software application has been installed on your computer and it wrote over top of the DLL file that another program needs. Sometimes the version that has replaced the old DLL file isn’t compatible with the older program.
  • Sometimes software installs and uninstalls don’t work the way they should and a DLL file gets damaged or corrupted.
  • Malicious spyware or adware software has been secretly loaded on your computer and is messing about with your Windows DLL file structure. *Recommended: use this free download anti-spyware scan to see if you’re infected.
  • Occasionally, your computer has a hardware part that’s dying, like a hard drive or RAM chip and your DLL files are being mixed up or corrupted as a result.
  • Damage to your Windows Registry is affecting the way your DLL files operate.
then 2 problem with user log in-

to fix do this go to 'C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME' , where USERNAME is your user. Then right click on the folder and go to 'Sharing and Security...' Click on the security tab and make sure that SYSTEM has full permissions. If SYSTEM is not there, add it and then give permissions


delete ntuser.dat in your profile, windows will recreate it or if you dont want to take the risk then...

Search for & rename it to ntuser.dat if you don't pick up, then logg in with safe mode & networking as administrator, rename the corrupt profile, then, logg in again as yourself so that a new profile is created.

list.jpgMethod 2. Fix rtl120.bpl error by Disabling Related Programs from Startup.
The DLL file would be infected by virus or Trojan. If the anti-virus program on your computer detects and deletes the infected file, you would probably receive error message alarming you that the DLL file cannot be found. You absolutely will fail to run the relevant application or program but keep receiving DLL error message on the startup. In such situation, you have to re-download and install the application to re-register the DLL information. Accordingly you have to disable an application run automatically on system startup in order to avoid such DLL error message:
  • a. Click "Start" menu--"Run"--type in "msconfig"---Start--- select the certain item to disable.
  • b. Reboot your computer.

I got a remote controll helicopter and when I installed the software for the Flying Model Simulator, it brings up an error saying that D3DRM.DLL IS NOT LOADED.. What can I do to run this program so I can...

The D3DRM.DLL file is the Dynamic Link Library for Direct3D Retained Mode, an older DirectX display technology that was not included with Windows Vista. Direct3D is used to render three dimensional images in applications where performance is important; the most common examples of which are games, CAD drawing programs and graphics editing software.
The error message displayed varies by program, but some some of the more common ones are:
  • "Failed to initialize Direct3D with current settings"
  • "Cannot find the file d3drm.dll"
  • "This application has failed to start because d3drm.dll was not found"
  • "D3DRM.dll is not loaded"
This error is usually a sign that the d3drm.dll file has been deleted, corrupted or altered in such a way that makes it unusable to your program.
To fix errors like this:
1. Install the latest version of Microsoft DirectX. It will fix the d3drm.dll error.
2. Uninstall the game or software program and then reinstall it again.
3. Update the drivers for your video card.
4. If it doesn,t work copy d3drm.dll file to the system folder.
Hope it helps.
