Error: The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135)

If you are getting the error “The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135). Click on OK to terminate the application.” when you are launching an application you do not have the .NET Framework installed.

You can go to to download the .NET Framework from Microsoft.

This can be an issue with XP systems as they do not come with .NET Framework by default, most Vista and newer systems will have .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 installed by default. Please remember that .NET Framework 4.0 is not backwards compatible with .NET Framework 3.5.

Windows ReportQueue Eating the Drive

Working on a few system I have found that the following folder has filled up at times with error report files eating all available drive space.

C:\Users\All Users\Microsoft\Windows\Wer\ReportQueue\*

Now I know that this if you have files collecting here you might have bigger issues with the system and you should check that out in time. The files are safe to delete and will not cause any issues after removed. You can also disable error reporting on the system to stop the generation of the error reports.
