The application failed to initialize properly


Installation problem:

Download was successful. Moved zipped files to new folder C:\Program Files\SkypeAutoRecord.

Ran SkypeAutoRecorder.exe.

Result: dialog box containing "The application failed to initialize properly. (0xc0000135). Click on OK to terminate the application." No other result.

  • Windows XP Home SP3
  • Firefox 22.0
  • Skype not running
Tried installing on a second computer with same software. Same result.

Update, 6/27/13: I just noticed under system requirements ".NET Framework 4.0". I do not have .NET installed on my computer (to prevent crashes and slow performance). I guess I should have expected this from a Microsoft-supported product, but for some reason I forgot about the .NET limitation on my computer. Most applications do not have this requirement.

You might consider a simple programmatic check so your product can make a sensible report to the user stating the actual problem.

I wish I could use this product.
