I have side by side issues on my primary ever since I got back from vacation and windows updates installed a bunch of fixes. (gone 6/15 to &/1) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have tried everything I know including upgrading the install from the Pro (64bit) version to the Ultimate version and have installed 4 different flavers of the C++ distributions. Fortunately I am an MS Partner and have a technet subscription so the cost hasn't killed me on this. Here is an SXStrace file output after trying three application launches. What ever it has messed up is also faulting the commo capability from within quicken 10 as well. This is killing me as it affects practically every application I use on a daily basis. I installed Office 14 upgrading from Office 12 and managed to get that part working but that doesn't give me my Photo Shop Elements, Acrobat 9 etc etc. Here is one of the trace file outputs. Somebody help please! I kknow an update did it I just don't know which one or how to back it out. There is one distribution update now that will not install. It came up as an update after everything else had crashed and I had tried what I could. The update that is failing now is:

    MS11-025: Description of the security update for Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package: June 14, 2011 KB2538243

  • SideBySide errors are typically caused by the current Microsoft Visual C++ version not being backward compatible with the application that failed. The Event ID 33 error message is typically: Activation context generation failed for “program name”..Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis. There are other similar SideBySide errors with the same problem of backward compatibility. If the software works OK then you don't have to fix it but if it does not or you want to get rid of this error here are two Fixes:


    1) Reinstall or Repair (preferred if an option) the application. Often the installation package will have the version of Microsoft Visual C++ that it uses and will install it.


    2) Try to figure out what Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package version (available versions are: 2003, 2005, 2008, & 2010) the application needs (most likely the one that came out prior to the date that the application software was created; check the dates of the files in the package). . These are available through Microsoft's Downloads.

    Worse comes to worse you can just try installing a previous version to see if it works, if not then try the one before that. Though I don't like it, you can have multiple versions of Microsoft  on your computer and most people do because various install programs will install the one that they need.

  • Hi Carl,

    ERROR: Component identity found in manifest does not match the identity of the component requested. Reference is Microsoft.VC80.CRT,processorArchitecture="x86",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",type="win32",version="8.0.50727.5592". Definition is Microsoft.VC80.CRT,processorArchitecture="x86",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",type="win32",version="8.0.50727.762".

    Based on the logs, you need to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package.

  • Miya thanks for the response. I did as you asked and still couldn't launch acrobat or Adobe PSE. Yes I did reboot in between each attempt.

    I hope I can paste a list of my VC80 file folders from winsxs here. Evidently I can't  no matter how I try. I take that back if I fall back to my dos days and a redirect from the dir command to a text file I can give you the lists. I will also give you the VC90 lists since they show up as well. Should give you a better feel for what's on this system. Easier to throw away data you don't need than try and guess what is there.Here is what event viewer shows for side by side faults on last launch attempts of Adobe PSE Ver 7 and Acrobat Std Ver 9

    Adobe PSE

    Activation context generation failed for "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 7.0\Photoshop Elements 7.0.exe".Error in manifest or policy file "C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Photoshop Elements 7.0\Microsoft.VC80.CRT\Microsoft.VC80.CRT.MANIFEST" on line 11.

    Acrobat Std V9 (There were several items when you try and launch acrobat but this is representative of them.

  • I forgot to tell you that this system only shows Net Framework 4 Client & Extended where my laptop shows 1.1 and 4client. Laptop is working and I'm pretty sure I had framework 2 and 3.5 on this system before the windows update debacle. Just another datapoint that I thought might help.

  • Hi Carl,

    Sorry for the delayed reponse because I've had a vacation last few days.

    Your former events showed:

    Microsoft.VC80.CRT,processorArchitecture="x86",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",type="win32",version="8.0.50608.0" could not be found

    Loading a C/C++ application can fail if dependent Visual C++ libraries cannot be found. This version 8.0.50608.0 indicates that this application is built with Visual C++ 2005, therefore, you also need to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86)

    In fact, which versions of Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable package are needed is decided by different applications. All I found in your logs showed three versions:  8.0.50727.5592 , 8.0.50727.762, 8.0.50608.0 .

    Additionally, you'll find that the winsxs folder will get bigger if you installed more and more applications, it's hard to decide which folder in your lists is needed or not because the application itself also update sometimes. Therefore, don't worry about those folders.

    Regards,

    Miya

  • Miya everbody needs a little vacation now and then even us "retired" guys. I've done reinstalls on Quicken and acrobat and still have troubles. I mucked around with the manifest file and for some reason got PhotoShop Elements working. Not sure what I did just changed some version references in the file.

    Here is sxtrace for both Acrobat Standard 9 and Quicken 2010. Trace started just before program launch and ended after program failure. I hope that helps in letting me know what I need to correct because it is driving me crazy. I'm almost to the blind regedit stage :-)

  • Hi Carl,

    There are four parts of your traces, I'll explain one by one to let you know what happened.

    PART 1:

    ManifestPath = C:\Program Files (x86)\Adobe\Acrobat 9.0\Acrobat\Acrobat.exe

    INFO: Post policy assembly identity is Microsoft.VC80.CRT,processorArchitecture="x86",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",type="win32",version="8.0.50727.5592".

    ERROR: Cannot resolve reference Microsoft.VC80.CRT,processorArchitecture="x86",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",type="win32",version="8.0.50727.762".

    ERROR: Activation Context generation failed.

    These means the reference version 8.0.50727.762 cannot be resolved as I said before, you need install Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package.  

    PART 2:

    ManifestPath = C:\Program Files (x86)\Quicken\calnote.dll

    INFO: Manifest Definition Identity is Microsoft.VC90.CRT,processorArchitecture="x86",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",type="win32",version="9.0.30729.4940".

    INFO: Activation Context generation succeeded.

    This process succeeded, the Quicken is installed correctly. It found the right version, which is Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86).

    PART 3:

    ManifestPath = C:\Program Files (x86)\Quicken\QDAPPUI.dll

    INFO: Manifest Definition Identity is Microsoft.VC90.CRT,processorArchitecture="x86",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",type="win32",version="9.0.30729.4940".

    INFO: Activation Context generation succeeded.

    This process is as same as PART 2.

    PART 4:

    ManifestPath = C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\mscorwks.dll

    INFO: Post policy assembly identity is Microsoft.VC80.CRT,processorArchitecture="x86",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",type="win32",version="8.0.50727.5592". 

    ERROR: Cannot resolve reference Microsoft.VC80.CRT,processorArchitecture="x86",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",type="win32",version="8.0.50608.0".

    ERROR: Activation Context generation failed.

    I'm a little confused, this Microsoft.NET Framework v2.0.5.727 is very old, and it does not support Windows 7. Why you install this?

    And based on the trace, the assembly identity is version 8.0.50727.5592, however, you need 8.0.50608.0, which should be  Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86)

    IN CONCLUSION:

    If Acrobat 9.0 and Microsoft.NET Framework v2.0.50727 are showed in Control Panel\Programs\Programs and Features, please uninstall them firstly, delete their folder in C:\Program Files (x86) (if the folder existed), then manually download and install Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86) and Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package

    In addition, since I cannot test the issue on my side, I suggest you also contact Adobe support to check if they experience the similar situation.

  • Miya I had a long message last night that evidently didn't get delivered. The short version is that I only show Version 4 Client and Extended of Framework in the list not the V 2.0.50727.0 or Version1, 3, or 3.5. I do not show the 2005 C++ versions other than 8.0.61001, 8.0.56336, 8.0.50727.42, 8.0.59192(X64) and 8.0.61000(X64). That is all the 2005 C++ Versions listed. The 2008 C++ that is listed (only one) is V 9.0.30729.6161.

    This is a list of all the registry keys I found that referenced specifically V 2.0.50727.0. There were also refences to 1.1, 2.0, 3.0 and 3.5 in there as well

    All I know for sure on all the abnormal stuff in my system is that it was working fine when I shut it down on 6/15/2011 and when I returned on 7/1/2011 and powered up and let the updates run the system got trashed. Please help me get this fixed as I don't want to do a rebuild from scratch.

  • Hi,

    The trace is fine. The activation context generation succeeded.

    Do you have a restore point? I think restore to the former time could be much more easier than tough troubleshooting.

    If you don't have a restore point, we need do more test.

    Restart the computer and enter into safe mode. Could you lanch the Photoshop in Safe Mode?

    If it works in Safe Mode, also test in Clean Boot to check if there's any third-party conflict.

    If it doesn't work in Safe Mode, what's the error message? Or the application just crash?

    Regards,

    Miya

  • Miya I finally gave up and rebuilt from scratch. I had so many restore points created when this first happened that I couldn't get back to pre the update debacle. So I guess the lesson learned here is twofold:

    1) Don't allow the update process to run by itself with multiple update installs attempted at one time.

    2) Do NOT trust MS updates until others have been foolish enough to load them at least a week or two before you do. That way you can search the forums for updating problems before you release them on your own system.

     

    I do want to thank you very much for your very sincere and able help with this problem. Perhaps we shall meet again and you will be able to save me once again. God knows in the 30 years I have been doing this stuff I have managed to make most of the mistakes you can make and learned from them all.

  • Hi Carl,

    Unfortunately we didn't figure this out. But, if you have any questions about Windows 7 in the future, please feel free to ask them here. We will try our best to help you.

    Have a nice day:)

  • SideBySide errors are typically caused by the current Microsoft Visual C++ version not being backward compatible with the application that failed. The Event ID 33 error message is typically: Activation context generation failed for “program name”..Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis. There are other similar SideBySide errors with the same problem of backward compatibility. If the software works OK then you don't have to fix it but if it does not or you want to get rid of this error here are two Fixes:


    1) Reinstall or Repair (preferred if an option) the application. Often the installation package will have the version of Microsoft Visual C++ that it uses and will install it.


    2) Try to figure out what Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package version (available versions are: 2003, 2005, 2008, & 2010) the application needs (most likely the one that came out prior to the date that the application software was created; check the dates of the files in the package). . These are available through Microsoft's Downloads.

    Worse comes to worse you can just try installing a previous version to see if it works, if not then try the one before that. Though I don't like it, you can have multiple versions of Microsoft  on your computer and most people do because various install programs will install the one that they need.

  • Thanks for the help. I did eventually install the one it was looking for and it turned out to be one of the 64X flavor versions. I now have an abundance of riches when it comes to installed versions of VC+ on my system. Not a system condition I like but until program developers are not allowed to key to the modules it is one we will have to live with. I understand that MS has a role here as well because they should not be alowed to "break" the old levels with new if the application developers are constrained to the files (Versions) on the system. It was a learning experience for me and another instance of the major differences between "corporate" level systems (Unix and most mainframe OSs) where I was immersed for so many years to transition to what is essentialy a consumer OS with a tremendous challenge to work on vitually every combination of system HW and BIOS that exists. Open systems are difficult if not nearly impossible to manage. One of the reasons the Apple model works so well is that they do close their systems. That however leads to higher price points because of that control as well.

    Regardless my system is back up and running and I will be much more careful about what updates I allow to run and when in the future. So all's well that end well.
