I have Windows 7 running in Parallels Desktop 10 for Mac.
Although things have worked in the past, recently, several application will not run and I get the following error:
CLR initialization failed with error 800700c1.
This includes chocolatey and powershell..
I couldn't find any solution to this.
Also, when I attempted "Control Panel->Troubleshooting->Fix Problems with Windows Update" I get an error dialog with the exact same code.
I also tried repairing and updating the .NET Framework installation, but to no avail.
More repair attempts:
- chkdsk: Windows has checked the file system and found no problems.
- SFC /scannow: Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.
I get the same error with another user and also in Safe Mode.
I am truly baffled.
Update: I think it is related to the following DLL:C:\WINDOWS\WinSxS\x86_Microsoft.VC80.CRT_1fc8b3b9alel8e3b_8.0.50727.3053_x-ww_b80fa8ca\MSVCR80.dll. It is apparently corrupted.
When I try to open in in depends it gives an error: "No DOS or PE signature found. This file is not a valid 32-bit or 64-bit Windows module."
Also asked here.
