Win7 winsxs folders question

    General discussion

  • my os win7 64 bits

    in windows\winsys folder, I'm doing some searching over this

    *microsoft.vc80.atl*

    I found many folders wich such pattern, ex: x86_microsoft.vc80.atl_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.91_none_dc9917e997f80c63

    I assume the number at the suffix part is the versioning.

    question:

    is Microsoft.VC80.ATL "8.0.50727.6229" considered part of valid component/stuffs on Win7 64 bits?

    if it is, I can't find this thing is Winsxs. I tried the sfc command , which report me no integration issue, something missing? or sfc has nothing to do with this?

    if it is not, then whatever application system rely on this specific ver of the ATL, is not properly written/tested for Win7 64 bits OS, right?

  • thx for the feedback.

    the link show that is a dll is expected in Winsxs folder, but no details about the version.

    my issue is one of the installer (MS Sql Server Express 2012) having problem to load a specific ver of that dll, and failed to startup setup.

    so I wonder is it my pc issue, or it's installer issue.

  • Hi,


    Since the error message showed microsoft.vc80.atl, which is related to Visual C++. Please check whether you have installed Microsoft Visual C++  Runtime Redistributable Package.


    Also, you can try the following to check whether it could help:


    1. Run the System Update Readiness tool: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/947821


    2.
    Clear the log.


    a. Open an Administrator command prompt: Right-click Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt and select "Run as Administrator" and click "Allow" for the elevation prompt

    b. In the command prompt, type the command below:


    fsutil resource setautoreset true C:\


    c. This assumes that C: is the drive in which system is installed. If it is installed on another drive like D:, please change the drive letter appropriately.

    d. Reboot the system.

    e. Install the software and check.

     

    3. Repair .net framework and check.


    Repair the Microsoft .NET Framework installation


    To do this, follow these steps:


    a. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click Add or Remove Programs.

    b. In the Currently installed programs list, click Microsoft .NET Framework, and then click Change/Remove.

    c. Click Repair, and then click Next.


    In addition, you can post in SQL Server forum for more help.


    Hope this helps.

    - try again the sql server 2012 express setup, same error.

    since this is sql server 2012 express setup issue, I will continue look for resolution there.

    thx for the feedback.
