fatal error 171 while attempting to report error 171 - windows 8 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Experts,

    I have new laptop with windows 8

    I installed one program that I need to work and I am getting the error: fatal error 171 while attempting to report error 171 

    Troubleshooting done:

    1- Reboot the laptop

    2- Uninstall and install 2 times 

    3- Tried to run the program in compatibility mode with older windows, even other laptop with windows 8 is working just fine

    4- Tried to install MVF runtime, it didnt continue the installation but no error message appeared

    5- Tried to check for windows updates, up to the latest ones

    6- Tried to update MVF, but I got error messages that it cannot be installed  

    Many thanks in advanced
