Sage 2014 Error when trying to publish


  • Hello, I'm getting the following error after sequencing the latest version of Sage Accounts 2014:

    Windows Error: 0x800736FF - The supplied assembly identity is missing one or more attributes which must be present in this context

    Error module: Virtualization Subsystem. Internal error detail: A460142A800736FF.

    The sequence runs fine, it all launches ok, the error I am seeing when I try and load it into SCCM for delivery or also using Tim's

    App-V Manage tool. I don't know where to start as the event logs aren't telling me anything.

    I've tried adding manually through powershell, it doesn't error but nothing is being published.

    I'm running app-v 5 sp2 hotfix 4.

  • Can you send me the package to look at?  Any kind of cloud storage will do.

  • Hi Tim, thanks for your message, can you email me directly  and I'll send you a link to the package.

  • Ian,

    I looked at the package and the failure.  I smell an App-V bug and have reported it into the development team.  All my tool can do is report the client publishing error. If you want prompter action on the bug, you should consider opening a support ticket with Microsoft directly as those ensure you get someone to look at it right away.

    I believe the cause is likely to be a couple of side-by-side components from Sage that were captured for local installation during the publishing process, along with all of those VC Runtimes.

    A possible workaround would be to install the Sage components natively, first on the sequencer before sequencing and then on any clients getting the package as a dependency.  It's not a bad thing to do the same with the VC Runtimes, but not related to your issue.  You should probably test that theory before opening the ticket.

  • Hello, I have tried disabling the following option:

    Package pre-installed VC runtime dependencies and side-by-side assemblies.

    I still get the same error.

  • You should open a ticket with Microsoft.  They really seemed adamant about that.

  • Hi.

    Was there any solution to this issue. Just tried to package the program and got the same error myself.

    Thanks in advance!

  • For any additional readers of this thread, the suggested solution that is reported to work by IanC97 in this thread is to delete the SBDDesktop.exe.config file.

  • Deleting "SBDesktop.exe.config" sounds like a great answer for someone getting this error with "Sage" but is absolutely useless for anyone getting the same exact error message virtualizing a different application.

    Perhaps an explanation on how it was determined what is causing the problem or how it was concluded that "SBDesktop.exe.config" should be deleted would be more worthy answers.

  • Well you will have to ask Microsoft for that, they spent 2 weeks troubleshooting this for us and their conclusion was this file is not there in a local install so deleting it from the virtual package was our solution.

  • Hi Ian,

    I had the same issue with Sage Payroll v16 and I've tried removing SBDesktop.exe as couldn't find a SBDDesktop.exe.config file in the same location but didn't help. Any ideas is it the same or am I missing SBDDesktop.exe.config on My package. Thanks. 

    Kind Regards

  • Hello All

    I am also having this same issue.

    Once again my application is Sage:

     - Sage Accounts 50 v23

     - Sage Payroll 50 v21 & v22

    I have made multiple attempts to package these apps, packaging with and without the c++ redistributables and .net framework 3.5.

    I like ash do not have the SBDDesktop.exe.config file and therefore cannot remove it from the package.

    Cannot someone shed some light on this issue?
