Default What is SideBySide & why is it associated with crashing?

I see it has something to do with Exchange Server, but I am not using MS Exchange (I assume that's what that is) but I am running Outlook.

Last time this happened, the entire PC froze, needed a reset, when I simply moved my mouse (without clicking) within MCP context menus. (That was probably just a coincidence... but.. I dunno... starting to bum...... )

From Event Viewer, indicated as an Error, Event ID 33

Activation context generation failed for "C:\Windows\system32\conhost.exe". Dependent Assembly Microsoft.Windows.SystemCompatible,processorArchit ecture="x86",publicKeyToken="6595b64144ccf1df",typ e="win32",version="6.0.7600.16823" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.

For some history do a search on "dll hell". Side-By-Side solves 90% of that. Its most likely a versioning conflict but its a little late for me to pinpoint which it is tonight. I think you can open a command line and run sxstrace in a format similar to the following:

sxstrace Trace -logfile:"c:\sxstrace.etl"

You might want to run cmd.exe (command line) as administrator.

Funny you mention Exchange Server, its been my forte for years. However, you are right, its not related to your issue.

I just realized that trace will likely take forever to run then require another step to parse the results of the .etl file. Have you installed anything new lately?

Never heard of it... until now, thanks
http://blogs.msdn.com/b/junfeng/arch...14/576314.aspx

Some highlights:
"SxS COM with manifest is one of those “well kept secrets” that should be more well known."

"A common mistake is to xcopy the application to a different machine without installing the VC80 CRT redist in that machine.

A different common mistake is to compile the application in debug mode, and try to use the application in a machine with only retail VC80 CRT redist installed. Application compiled in debug mode will depend on the debug version of VC80 CRT, and there is no redist for it."

Are you having 64/32-bit problems with cmd.exe, maybe...?

couple questions.

1- windows update( I hope you have disabled this )

2- MS activation, check to make sure your windows somehow did not become De authorized. This is probably not it

check your windows updates for KB2507938 and remove,reboot, this has helped some I have read.

Thanks for the replies on this.

I have automatic updates turned off, though it does notify me of when they're available.

In any case, SideBySide is generating errors on a regular basis.

Although it may appear to flood the event viewer with multiple error 33s especially on servers utilising the command prompt, Microsoft has informed that this error does not affect the command prompt window functionality and can be ignored. Upgrading to Windows 7 SP1 is also a potential option if the situation permits.

Have you tried updating to SP1?
