Windows 7: SideBySide Admin Event Error

SideBySide Admin Event Error

Not really sure where to post this question - any help will be appreciated though!

Have a Win 7 Pro desktop. Looking in the Admin Events and see the following Error with an Event ID=63.

Activation context generation failed for "D:\Program Files (x86)\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin\MySQLInstanceConfig.exe".Error in manifest or policy file "D:\Program Files (x86)\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0\bin\MySQLInstanceConfig.exe" on line 6. The value "asAdministrator" of attribute "level" in element "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1^requestedPrivileges" is invalid.

How is this fixed?

Thanks - Tom

IMO, that's a brain dead service in the first place - - just disable it and be happy :)

Please download and save the CheckSUR tool from
(you'll need to look in the details for Windows 7, downloading from the Microsoft Download Center)

Run it - The tool can take anywhere from 5 mins to a couple of hours to run (or 'Install') depending on how much it has to do, and may exit silently - it may appear to freeze for most of that time, but be patient.
The result is logged in the C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CheckSUR.log file - and an archive …\checksur.persist.log file

Then zip the CheckSUR.log an attach it to your reply so I can take a look
