Update Tool for ePO 5.10 Update 2 fails with an SidebySide (79) windows event error

Jump to solution

Dear all,

As implied by the title, the ePO Updater tool fails with the following error:

 

"The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail."

 

The ePO is of version 5.10.0.2428, running on a Windows Server 2016 Datacenter Evaluation environment ( lab ), which is a VM running through VMWare workstation.

 

The database is on the same VM. ( SQL Server 2016 Service Pack 1 v. 13.0.4001 )

 

The relevant log in event viewer includes the following

 

"Activation context generation failed for "C:\Users\Administrator\Downloads\ePO_5.10.0_Update_2\ePOUpdater.exe". The setting http://schemas.microsoft.com/SMI/2011/WindowsSettings^disableWindowFiltering is not registered."

 

On a simple check over the internet, I could not observe a satisfying solution to this issue, although it is reported several times:

 

 

Currently, I am trying to implement the troubleshooting described here: https://www.reddit.com/r/techsupport/comments/6gajcs/fix_for_activation_context_generation_failed_th...

 

 without success until now.

 

I need this update to fix the issue described in KB90876

 

Any suggestion to this would be welcome.

 

Thank you.

Did you ever get this resolved?  I couldn't find anything on it either.  Did you try update 3?
