Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.
This is the version of the file that we have on the machine.


Research has indicated that this is caused by a corrupt file from the Microsoft Visual C++ distribution.


Download and reinstall the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x64) using the below link.

Use either 32 of 64 bit version depending on your Operating System requirements.
