Side by Side Configuration error in Windows 7 RC x64 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey all,
    I have an app that we develop in house using a run time supplied by a company called Micro Focus.

    I can successfully run this app in Vista/XP/2000 (x86/x64). For some reason when running it in a brand new copy of Windows 7 RC x64 though, I get a message that the app failed to start since it's side by side configuration was incorrect.

    I've done some searching and some suggestions were to reinstall the Visual C++ 2008/2005 redistributables. So I tried both of those in the x64 and x86 versions, and got the following error (copied from event viewer):

    Product: Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable -- Error 1935.An error occurred during the installation of assembly 'Microsoft.VC80.ATL,type="win32",version="8.0.50727.762",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",processorArchitecture="x86"'. Please refer to Help and Support for more information. HRESULT: 0x80070BC9. assembly interface: IAssemblyCacheItem, function: Commit, component: {97F81AF1-0E47-DC99-A01F-C8B3B9A1E18E}

    So I guess two things:
    1: Any suggestions to get the side by side error to go away
    2: If your suggestion is to reinstall the VCR, any suggestions to fix the error I get during the install?

  • Hello,

    There are some articles from MS about this issue:

    and this one:



    "Article ID: 872904 - Last Review: January 15, 2007 - Revision: 2.4

    You may receive an "Error 1935" error message when you try to install Visual Studio .NET or Visual Studio 2005"


    For info:

    FIX: An installation may fail with error 1935 when an .msi file tries to install many policy files on a computer that has the .NET Framework 2.0 installed


    I hope this helps.
