Q. Can I change the Relative Identifier (RID) of a built-in object?

A. The RID values are hard-coded in the Windows OS code through header files and shouldn't be changed. Even if you did manage to change a RID, much of the internal OS code refers to the built-in objects by their RIDs instead of their names. Thus, changing the RIDs could cause a lot of problems for your Windows systems.
