.NET Framework error The specified module could not be found. 0x8007007E RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to run the program IncrediBackup. It has been running fine until the other day when I started getting a .NET Framework error: An error occurred creating the form. The specified module could not be found. 0x8007007E.

    I have tried reinstalling IncrediBackup but that did not help. I have reinstalled .NET Framework & that did not help. I have tried running it in every compatibility mode choice including the IncrediBackup tech support suggestion of Windows XP Service Pack 3. (Note I had not changed the compatibility setting prior to the program starting to produce the .NET Framework error.) It does seem the error started popping up after some recent Windows 10 updates in May but I am not positive that is related.

    Details:

    See the end of this message for details on invoking 
    just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

    ************** JIT Debugging **************
    To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
    application or computer (machine.config) must have the
    jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
    The application must also be compiled with debugging
    enabled.

    For example:

    <configuration>
        <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
    </configuration>

    When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
    will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
    rather than be handled by this dialog box.

  • the program is trying to load an ActiveX control: "AxHost.GetOcxCreate"
    but can not find the file: "The specified module could not be found. "
    So seems more like a problem with the setup.
    You could try Process Monitor to see what file it can not find.

    As the program is still using the old .NET Framework 3.5: is this really the current version?
    Thanks for your reply. Yes, I am using the current version of IncrediBackup. Unfortunately it is not updated very often at all. I am working the next 48hrs but when I get a chance I will check with Process Monitor as you suggested. Thanks!

    Well I did get some time tonight after all & ran Process Monitor which seemed to indicate a registry item that could not be found. Even though I had already uninstalled & reinstalled IncrediBackup I decided to uninstall it using Revo Uninstaller Pro so I could get every last trace of it removed especially from the registry. Then I reinstalled the program hoping to get all the registry files back in the correct place & it worked! Thank you so much for your help!
