Ok, well, I need an exe that actually causes the error you originally reported on your side. If you send me something that also works on your side then I will not see much :D

P.S. The error you see is PowerShell initializing a provider and failing. You need to take that up with Microsoft.

Works perfectly fine here. Windows 7 Pro 64 Bit

Run a Command prompt with admin rights and run this command:

SxsTrace Trace -logfile:SxsTrace.etl

Now run the programm which causes the SideBySide error.
Go back to the command prompt press ENTER to generate the SxsTrace.etl. Now type this:

sxstrace Parse -logfile:SxSTrace.etl -outfile:SxSTrace.txt

Post the content of the text file here please.

I have extracted the manifest from the file you sent me with this: http://weblogs.asp.net/kennykerr/manifest-view-1-0
I see no syntax error in the manifest.

Code: Select all

Do you have another machine to try this? Is this something that only shows this behavior on one machine or on more of computers?

At the moment this behaviour is on one machine. I'll reinstall the Testclient and check this again.
A littlebit confusing is the thing, that nothing has changed on this Client. No network Connection, no Updates, just copy the visit file from the DEV to the Test Client throw a shared DIR and run the visit file.

Hi Alexander,

now I have found time for setup a new machine and test the issue. With the new machine(win7 pro EN x64), same client like the other clients, clean with PS4 and all Updates. The Problem doesn't occour.

I don't know what the other clients problem is, but we can close the thread. If I can get the error in a reproductive way I'll write a message.
