Application Error. The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135) may mean .NET's not installed

While attempting to setup CruiseControl.NET on a new build server I ran into this error “Application Error. The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135). Click OK to terminate the application”. The problem? The .NET framework wasn’t installed on the machine. The server is running Windows XP and I was accessing it via remote desktop from a Vista box so the lack of .NET left me scratching my head for a second.

  1. Yap, I never understood why there isn’t a more explicit ‘error’ for this kind of situations. I guess they leave it for the installer to manage.

  2. I have had a similar problem, but with Vista. I attempted to install new programs, and got the oxcoooo135 message, after searching on the internet for answers, it was suggested to download and install .net 1.1, so i did. but I then experienced a number of other error messages! have you got any ideas of what i should do?….. your help would be so useful!
