    Level: Error
    Source: SideBySide
    Event ID: 33

    Activation context generation failed for "C:\Program Files (x86)\Acronis\BootableComponents\WinPE\Files\systeminfo.exe". Dependent Assembly

    detailed diagnosis.

Cause

The error is caused by the WinPE plug-in of Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 using different manifests than Acronis Backup & Recovery 10 itself.

Solution

(!) This has been fixed and the fix is available in the latest build of the product. See Installation of the latest update of an Acronis product.

To work around the issue without installing the latest build, see below.

The files that cause the errors belong to Acronis WinPE plug-in.

If you intend to use Acronis WinPE plug-in, you can safely ignore the messages.

If you are not going to use Acronis WinPE plug-in and would like to eliminate the messages, please do the following:

  1. Browse to the following folder:
    • Windows 32 bit: C:\Program Files\Acronis\BootableComponents
    • Windows 64 bit: C:\Program Files (x86)\Acronis\BootableComponents
  2. Right-click on the WinPE folder and choose Send to -> Compressed folder;
  3. Delete the original WinPE folder.

    This will not affect the product's functionality. You will only not be able to use Acronis WinPE plug-in, unless you unpack it back.
