After you apply Windows NT 4.0 Service Pack 4 on a German Windows NT computer, you may receive the following pop-up error message when you start certain applications:
Illegale Verschiebung einer System-DLL
Die System-DLL "ole32.dll" wurde im Speicher verschoben. Die Anwendung wird nicht einwandfrei ausfhrbar sein. Die Datei wurde verschoben, da die DLL "C:\WINNT\system32\NTMARTA.DLL" einen Adrebereich belegt, der fr Windows NT-System-DLLs reserviert ist. Besorgen Sie sich vom DLL-Lieferanten eine neue DLL.


This problem occurs because Ntmarta.dll has a default load address that conflicts with the load address of Ole32.dll. This is only a problem when Ntmarta.dll is loaded before Ole32.dll.
