Ok, so I performed a chkdsk and seems to be fine.

I have run sfc/ scannow with the only error being the uiautomationcore.dll. I have deleted this file from system32 and syswow64. I ran sfc again and it still comes up with not able to repair this file, even though they are not there? which makes me think I haven't deleted them properly?

Not sure what to do next, I have a windows disk, and I ran a system repair (not with the disk but without, from boot menu on my PC) Took about 5 seconds, not sure if that is correct, found an error with sfssync02.sys, not sure if that is significant?

Not sure what to do now? Will it make a difference if I use my disc to repair?

Not sure on a lot of things actually? FSX comes up with a slightly different error (Fatal error) same result, game doesn't start. Although a few people on the FSX forums say the error is due to the UIautomationcore.dll in the FSX folder. This may be related to the one in the system32 folder though?

uiautomationcore.dll is actually in 3 different locations on a 64bit OS.

System 32, SysWOW64, and another in the winxs folder

If you do a seach for the dll in the Windows folder, youll find it. Its in winxs/wow64_Microsoft .......

But you really should replace it it with one thats good, rather than just delete it.


I take it a system roll back with a image is not a option?

a system roll back isn't really an option because I don't know when this problem started, I haven't played those games effected for some months until the other day.

I ran a search, and it only found the last one in my FSX folder, I don't even have a winxs folder? could it be hidden?

Can I replace these files with my windows 7 disc? I haven't put the disc in yet, so that is still an option.

I just want to get this uiautomationcore.dll sorted so that I can eliminate it as the cause or discover it as the cause.

I can upload the .dlls for you not a problem if thats what you want to do on my system their found in actually four places.
C:\Windows\System32
C:\Windows\SysWOW64
C:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-uiautomationcore_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_0c0d85465bcceb37
C:\Windows\winsxs\wow64_microsoft-windows-uiautomationcore_31bf3856ad364e35_6.1.7600.16385_none_16622f98902dad32

You may have to do it in safe mode you may not I don't know but you will have to rename the files after you take ownership of them.

Take Ownership Shortcut

Windows 7 home premium there they are:


Attached Files
File Type: zip system32.zip (289.2 KB, 5 views)
File Type: zip syswow64.zip (233.0 KB, 3 views)
File Type: zip winxs-amd64.zip (289.2 KB, 3 views)
File Type: zip winxs-wow64.zip (233.0 KB, 3 views)

yeah ok, I found all 4 + 1 in my FSX folder.

Can I just delete these and replace them with the ones you upload?

they all have padlocks next to them, does that matter?

Cheers

That means that you don't have ownership to them and in order to replace them or delete and replace you'll have to gain ownership of them. A really easy way is to put that "take ownership" in you context menu like in the link I gave you in my post. Once there all you have to do is right click on the .dll and take ownership of it..

ok cheers.

I have followed you "take ownership" link and added it to my registry, however when I right click on the file and click take ownership the padlock is still there, even after refresh?
