Windows Server 2008 R2 - Multiple application errors in module MSVCR90.DLL RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm having some trouble with one of the terminal servers that I administrate, lately there have been a large number of application errors reported by users. Looking at the logs they all have in common that they report MSVCR90.DLL as the faulty module, with some of the applications throwing errors being fixmapi.exe, iexplore.exe & acrord32.exe.

    I did some searching around and tried the usual things of uninstalling and reinstalling the mvc redist, however it doesn't appear to have made much of a difference. I configured capture of user-mode dumps as mentioned in http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-windows_programs/repeated-appcrash-errors-across-many-applications/18ee194c-56dd-4909-abed-e563de11713b which seems to be recommended as a way to find the real faulty module that is behind all the problems, so far I've generated one dumpfile at least for a fixmapi.exe but I am not sure how to parse it, does anyone have any idea?
