Title: Activation context generation failed for Avast
Post by: Venomus on July 21, 2020, 02:40:34 PM
Recently getting this error. I tried running repair and it doesn't help. Only thing left to do is reinstall I guess. Here is the error:


Activation context generation failed for "c:\program files\avast software\Avast\rescuedisk\aswPEShell.exe". Dependent Assembly avast.local_vc142.crt,processorArchitecture="amd64",publicKeyToken="b7b3b11e08ac5c30",type="win32",version="14.0.0.0" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.

That is interesting, but guess you were not creating a rescuedisk at the time, so assume unrelated to my rescuedisk aswPEShell.exe saga:
