Windows SxS Error
We see errors similar to this in our Windows Application event log after installing Membase:
Activation context generation failed for "D:\Program Files\Membase\Server\bin\ns_server\collect_info.exe". Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC90.CRT,processorArchitecture="x86",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",type="win32",version="9.0.21022.8" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.
This is easily reproduced on a freshly installed Windows 2008 Server R2 box after installing Membase and trying to run the collect_info exe. It seems the Membase installer is missing the VC 9 runtime module.
The workaround is to download the runtime directly from Microsoft and install it. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=a5c84275-3b97-4ab7-a40d-3802b2af5fc2&displaylang=en
