The following message came up when I tried to instal Finale 2008 (music
notation software), which relies on the Microsoft C++ 2005 installer:
'Error 1935. An error occurred during the installation of assembly.
I tried a re-instal of Finale 2008 with prior closing down of Norton
Anti-Virus, and all other processes that I could close down, but I got the
same error on re-installing Finale 2008.
So, I looked at the Application log and got the following information:
'The problem with FINMIDI.dll is reported in the Application Event log as:*
*Activation context generation failed for "C:\PROGRAM FILES\FINALE
2008\FINMIDI.DLL". Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC80.CRT
could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.*
I tried running sxstrace.exe, but I did not get any alphanumeric output from
Does anyone have any idea how to solve this problem?
