    Question

  • Hello

    I have come across a few similar posts regarding this error message but mine seems to display a different error message when using the event log. I have noticed that the error messages posted by other users displayed are quite different e.g. D:\3ds Max 2011\3dsmax.exe".Error in manifest or policy file "C:\Windows\WinSxS\manifests\x86_policy.9.0.microsoft.vc90.openmp_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_9.0.30729.4148_none_0e9108e3b72e14d4.manifest" on line 0. Invalid Xml syntax.

    I dont receive such a detailed error message. My error message in event log is: Activation context generation failed for "S:\spa\spa.exe".Error in manifest or policy file "S:\spa\spa.exe" on line 0. Invalid Xml syntax.

    I am using a software called premier spa and it keeps failing to open. 

    I just wanted to post my error message and see if anyone has any suggestions on how to fix this problem. 

    Thank you.
