IRMCheck tells you to delete secproc.dll. Don’t do it!!!!

Hello everyone,

An issue has been creeping up lately with users running IRMcheck on Vista clients. You may see the following error in your IRMCheck.

This machine is activated incorrectly: unknown, file:///rmactivate.exe, 22/05/2008 8:39:00 PM [UTC]
Action:Please delete C:\Windows\system32\secproc.dll and restart Microsoft Office applications

Don't do it!! It is a bogus error, and if you do it, you will end up messing up your Vista machine, and everyone will poke and laugh at you.

IRMCheck has not been updated for RMS V2 on Vista, and will throw unreliable errors occasionally. It's still good for some checks on Vista...just ignore that one. The RMS product group is working on updating the tool to accomodate RMS V2 on Vista, and will post more info when it becomes available.
