  • the application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142) Message window during the closing down, labeled cmd.exe.

    I have a problem that only occurs during the closing down. When I select Shut Down I soon get a pop up that says... the application could not start correctly (0xc0000142) click on OK to close the application. window label is cmd.exe. Whether I click on the window, closing down product and eventually after say 30 seconds the alarm disappears. clicking on the alert simply displays another alert. This only occurs during the closing down. Also, I have no problem to launch cmd.exe during the normal operation, or any other program running in the command window. I read a few posts but don't see anything exactly like this, what happens during closing down.

    Suggestions would be appreciated.  Eric

    How to fix the application could not start correctly (0xc0000142) in win 7

    Hello Pramod V. Bennett,

    Sometimes, this error can be caused by trying to install a software that is not compatible with Windows 7.
    You can try the following methods:

    If the program is not compatible, then you try to install and run the program in compatibility mode.

    Use the following steps:

    (1) right click on the program

    2) click Properties

    3) click on the Compatibility tab

    (4) select run this program in compatibility mode and select Windows Vista or other operating system, the program has been run successfully.

    Check out the link here: make sure to run older programs in this version of Windows


    If you are running Windows 7 Professional or Ultimate version, install Windows Virtual PC and Windows XP mode (http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/default.aspx) and run your software in Windows XP.

    If you run Windows 7 Home Premium, try VirtualBox (www.virtualbox.org) or VMware Player (www.vmware.com), or any other software virtualization part 3rd and install a separate copy of Windows XP (family or professional edition) for this purpose. You can find the virtualization software free that will run on Windows 7 Home Premium.

    I hope this helps.

    I'm on a 64-bit Windows 7 Pro computer and just upgraded to the most recent Adobe Acrobat Reader DC.  When I open a PDF file a window opens saying "the application could not start (0xc0000005).  Click OK to close this application"I click OK and the window opens up again about three or four times before it finally stopped.  My PDF file is then visible.  This is driving me crazy!  I tried to use "Repair Installation" in the Menu Help, but it has no effect.  I downloaded and installed the latest update - and this miserable message keeps popping up!  Before you do a system restore to revert to the previous version, can someone please tell me how to solve this problem?  Thank you very much.


    There might be a chance of the previous version left overs. Try uninstalling Acrobat using cleaning tool: http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/acrobatcleaner.html

    Then try to reinstall it and then see if that solves the problem.

  • Dependency services or the Group was unable to start on Vista

    I have window Vista and wireless internet in my house.  The icon that shows if you are connected to the internet has a red x in the way in and he says: "State of the unknown connection of dependency service or group failed to start" I'm sometimes still connected to the internet when it says this, but it disconnects while I'm in the middle of something and I have to re start the computer to get it back.  I continue to have the right message.

    I tried to disable the firewall.and it does not make a difference.  Not sure if this helps, but I have Trendmicro Antivirus and spy sweeper from webroot on the computer.  I thought that maybe it was the internet provider, but we went from companies and it has changed nothing.

    Right click on the Wifi device and UNINSTALL - Reboot - it will refresh the driver stack.

    Look at the sites of the manufacturer for drivers - and the manufacturer of the device manually.

    How to install a device driver in Vista Device Manager

    Download - SAVE - go where you put it - right click – RUN AS ADMIN.

    You can download several at once however restart after the installation of each of them.

    After watching the system manufacturer, you can check the manufacturer of the device an even newer version. (The
    manufacturer of system become your backup policies).

    Repeat for card (NIC) network and is a good time to get the other updated drivers as Vista like
    updated drivers.

    I would also turn off auto update for the drivers. If the updates Windows suggests a just HIDE as they

  • Outlook Express could not be started. The application was unable to initialize the store directory. Your computer may be out of memory or your disk is full. Error code: 0 x 80007114

    Operating system Windows XP, at startup, I get the message: "Outlook Express could not be started. The application was unable to initialize the store directory. Your computer may be out of memory or your disk is full"and displays the error code: 0 x 80007114.  (I have a new drive hard with enough space) Outlook Express always open well and functioning normally.  The message mentions and how to fix the problem?  Thank you, Rick

    Jump here (nothing Bruce suggested is false), I did a search and found this old article (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/245419), which indicates that there is a bad entry under the identity key in the registry (see www.oehelp.com/backup.aspx for background).  So if it's a big problem, you can do the steps suggested in this article and that will fix it.  Or if you have just one account, then backup your settings and the identity key and then delete the identity key and then start OE and it will establish a new, and you can then set up your account again, and then import the messages from the older directory.  But it does not indicate the major corruption, so you can just ignore it.

    Method 2: If a Protection of resources Windows (WRP) file is missing or is damaged, Windows may not behave as expected. Auditor of file system (CFS) scan to fix all of the corrupted system files. To do this, follow the steps mentioned in the link below:

    If everything works well after a clean boot, you can deduce that some third-party services are at the origin of the problem.

    Continue with the remaining steps to pin-point on the third party service.

    Hello DF2012OZ,

    You are able to get in Mode safe?

    If so, check in the case of the newspapers to see if you can see a similar error message. It can give more details.
    Then try to run Chkdsk to check for errors. Right-click your drive, go to properties, tools and error checking.

    You can also do a system restore to get back before you receive the error in the Solution Explorer.
