Bazaar explorer “Activation context generation failed”
After installing Bazaar on Windows server 2003 you might get an error while launching Bazaar Explorer stating something like this
Activation context generation failed for “C:\Program Files (x86)\Bazaar\lib\win32api.pyd”.Error in manifest or policy file “C:\Program Files (x86)\Bazaar\lib\Microsoft.VC90.CRT.MANIFEST” on line 12. The value “..\msvcr90.dll” of attribute “name” in element “urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1^file” is invalid.
While the message it self is cryptic the solution is quite simple, install the right version the C++ redist and the problem goes away.
