Q10176 - ERRMSG: The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000022)


 The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000022).


 The permissions aren't setup properly on MSVBVM60.DLL in your Windows System32 folder. Seems as though this problem surfaces if OPSSQL was installed when Microsoft Anti-Spyware software was running.


  1. Go to SYSTEM32 folder
  2. Locate the MSVBVM60.DLL file and right click on it, and select Properties
  3. Go to the Security Tab
  4. Click on Add. Type Everyone and hit OK
  5. Back at the Permission form, make sure Everyone is assigned Read & Execute permissions
  6. Click OK

great article, although the specific instructions did did not solve my issue (which was not related to opsys, but rather to AVG Antivirus Free Edition), i used the generic process on a number of files in the system32 folder until i modified the permissions on the right file - alls well that ends well Approved: 6/10/2007 6:33 AM

Extremely helpful for almost novices. Instructions are very easy to follow, especially with the drawings. Thanks very much. Approved: 1/23/2006 4:59 PM
I have noticed that some computers can only access the security tab through the administrator account which as far as I know can only be used in safemode. That and this will not solve all the problems relating to this error as with a couple programs (seems to be ones that utilize your interent connection) will give you this error even thought the problem has nothing to do with rights. Approved: 1/12/2006 9:45 PM
when I did this, the "security tab" wasnt there, therefore I was unable to do anything, I still have the same problem. Glad it is not this system otherwise I would be totaly dead in the water. As the problem machine will not function. hrayg@atlanticbb.net Approved: 1/6/2006 8:13 AM
