41518: Acronis SharePoint Explorer: Console Does Not Start on Windows XP/Windows 2003 with "Application Error. The Application Failed to Initialize Properly"

Last update: 24-07-2017

Console does not start on Windows XP or Windows 2003 with "Application error. The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135)"


You installed Acronis SharePoint Explorer Console and used the option to install Windows .NET 3.0 during installation. The installation is successful, but when you try to start console, it shows this error:

Application error. The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135)


Windows .NET 3.0 installation on Windows XP or Windows 2003 requires Windows Imaging Component (WIC). When you choose to install Windows .NET 3.0 using Acronis SharePoint Explorer installer on a machine without Windows Imaging Component, it fails without error. So, when you start Acronis SharePoint Explorer console it does not run properly because Windows .NET is not installed.


To solve this issue, please:

  1. Download and install Windows Imaging component from Windows website;
  2. Then, either install .NET 3.0 manually or re-run Acronis SharePoint Explorer installation with the same settings to install .NET 3.0 automatically.
