Here's another common issue we get from time to time that I think deserves a little pub:
When you try to start a sequenced application in the Microsoft SoftGrid Client, the application does not start. Additionally, you may receive an error message that resembles the following error message:
The SoftGrid Client could not launch application_name . This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix this problem. Error code: 410038-0060922C-800736B1
You may also see the following events logged in the Event Viewer System log:
Source: SideBySide Event ID: 59 Description: Generate Activation Context failed for < path of the .exe file >. Reference error message: The operation completed successfully.
Source: SideBySide Event ID: 59 Description: Resolve Partial Assembly failed for Microsoft.VC80.MFC. Reference error message: The referenced assembly is not installed on your system.
Source: SideBySide Event ID: 59 Description: Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC80.MFC could not be found and Last Error was The referenced assembly is not installed on your system.
This problem occurs if the following packages are not installed locally on the SoftGrid Client:
• The Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 Redistributable Package
• The Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package
To resolve this problem, use one of the following methods, depending on the situation.
1. Use any text editor, such as Notepad, to open the .osd file of the sequenced application.
2. Copy the following text to the .osd file.
<SCRIPT TIMING="POST" EVENT="STREAM" PROTECT="TRUE" WAIT="TRUE" TIMEOUT="0"> <SCRIPTBODY LANGUAGE="Batch"> echo off \n copy /y %SFT_MNT%\02MindMa.014\VFS\CSIDL_WINDOWS\WinSxS\Manifests %windir%\WinSxS\Manifests \n xcopy /S /y %SFT_MNT%\02MindMa.014\VFS\CSIDL_WINDOWS\WinSxS\Policies %windir%\WinSxS\Policies \n </SCRIPTBODY> </SCRIPT>
3. Save the .osd file, and then exit the text editor.
