Media Center Error: "The application failed to initialize…"

April 10, 2007

I just fixed a PC for that was throwing the following error when starting Media Center:
“The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000135). Click on OK to termniate the application.”

Not entirely sure what was up, but reinstalling the .Net Framework did the trick!

The Framework is normally installed via Windows update, you can download the .Exe file (Redistributable version) at the following link:

Microsoft .NET Framework Version 1.1 Redistributable Package
