Windows 7: Windows 7 and C++ issue

21 Sep 2014   #11

Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

OK, so I did step one and I still get the problem. I moved to step 2; checking various services, still same problem

Any other ideas we can try?

Follow Option ONE in Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions

That will give a full picture of the machine.

I can look at the events logs and services in the output

The Computer Browser and Server event log might be nothing - I disable the Server Service on my machine and get a few dependency event logs.

The DCOM entry say the MSIServer is being passed "" - not sure about this one.

You could try reinstalling the C++ runtimes as you suggested in post # 7.

.NET is quite a bear to install - lots of binds. If it comes to that you might consider a Repair install.

Post the DM collector stuff and I'll take a look.


Sysinternals Process Monitor would tell you the origin, but I'm really rusty on their use.

Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

Well, great news. I went back and ran the "Repair Windows", but something very weird happened. The first one I saw a screen that listed about 8 to 10 items like Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, etc. Rebooted and went back to do another repair, but this time the screen only had 4 options. So I did the repair again and then rebooted and now the laptop is up and running. I have started removing, rebooting and then installing programs slowly. I am on the 5th reboot and still it is working fine.

I will dig in to the logs afterwards to see what the errors look like now since the laptop is running. I don't know why it was so "constipated", but it appears to be unplugged so far. I'll report back what the logs say after I get the computer updated; included the Microsoft ones.

Glad you got it sorted Steve, wish I could say that anything I posted actually helped, but alas ... no

Not to drag this thread out, but when you say "went back to Repair Windows" you're talking about the Recovery disc option - yes? I'm a little confused because you then say that you're removing and installing programs slowly. It almost sounds more like a Repair install ... almost, but you wouldn't have to remove programs, only install them.

Anyway, as Miles said -
