Application error 0xc0000135 can occur in the event of a conflict between a third-party program installed on the computer. Sometimes Windows generates this error when trying to run an application that requires the .NET Framework but does not have the .NET Framework installed.
Since there are many ways to cause the above problem, there are many ways to fix error 0xc0000135. On older versions of Windows, it is mostly generated by the .NET framework.
If your system is full of registry errors and many system files are missing from your computer, error 0xc0000135 will always show up on your screen.
How to fix application error: Application could not initialize correctly (0xc0000135).
Performing a Clean Boot
To fix error messages and other problems, you can start Windows with minimal drivers and run programs. This type of commissioning is called “clean boot”. A good start helps avoid software conflicts.
Perform a clean boot and check if the problem is present.
- Click Start, type msconfig in the Start Search box, and then press Enter.
- When prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, enter the password or click Next.
- On the General tab, click Selective startup.
- In the Selective Startup section, clear the Load startup objects check box.
- Click the Services tab, select the Hide all Microsoft services check box and click Disable All.
- Click on OK.
- When prompted, click Restart.
After starting your computer, check if the problem is resolved.
Install and Reinstall the .NET Framework
There is an easy way to determine if this case is caused by a bug in your .NET environment.
- Click Start and go to Control Panel.
- Go to Programs / Programs and Features in Control Panel.
- Check if some form of .NET Framework is installed on your computer. Otherwise, you need to install .NET Framework 1.1, which can be found at this link.
- You should be able to run your program after installation!
Uninstall .NET Framework version 1.1 and reinstall it on your computer.
If uninstalling and reinstalling doesn’t work, the last option is to completely uninstall and reinstall Windows (whichever version you are using) due to a possible problem with the registry entries for the .NET Framework.
