    Problem with Sims Error?

    Hi there guys and Gals

    I am getting the following sims error on certain machines, bit of background.

    We are running sims through a vlan to access our admin network from our curriculum one. The Admin drive is mapped for the curriculum machines and the share works. On some machines when we go to run Sims we get this error

    "The dependency service or group failed to start [exception from HRESULT - Blahblah] : System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException

    Anyone with more knowledge about sims able to shed some light on a possible cause please

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, this Capita Knowledge Base article may be of help.

    KB60707

    System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException

    Type= System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException

    ErrorCode -2147023828

    The dependency service or group failed to start.

    Advice

    1. Uninstall Microsoft .NET Framework - this can be found in Add / Remove programs in the control panel. Click on Remove to uninstall

    2. Run the application DOTNETFX.EXE which is located in (in most cases) S:\SIMS\SETUPS - this will re-install Microsoft .NET Framework.
