The below hotfix from Microsoft is required on all Windows XP machines running AM8 or BPA8.

An application that uses the Sxs.dll file crashes when you run the application on a Windows XP-based computer.

There are 2 files available:

337228_ENU_i386_zip.exe (WindowsXP-KB943232-x86-ENU.exe)

363036_ENU_i386_zip.exe (WindowsXP-KB943232-v2-x86-ENU.exe)

Automate requires Windows XP SP3, so you need to download and install 363036_ENU_i386_zip.exe (WindowsXP-KB943232-v2-x86-ENU.exe).

    1. Connection to Local Tasks could not be established. Is the Automate Task Service running on that machine.
    2. Error 1920.Service Automate 8 (Automate8) failed to start. Verify that you have sufficient privileges to start system services.
    3. The instruction at "0x7c9369da" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be read.
    4. Unable to start or stop Automate or BPA services without generating error messages.

You must restart the computer after you apply this hotfix.

Hi Michael,

This issue is specific to .NET 4, which is not used before our version 8 product line.
