    Activation context generation fail for...


    Hello!
    every now and then I check the Computer Management. Today, in Administrative Events I found the following:


    [Activation context generation failed for "C:\Program Files (x86)\USB Disk Security\MFC80U.DLL". Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC80.MFCLOC,processorArchitecture="x86",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",type="win32",ver sion="8.0.50608.0" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.]

    I googled and found out that it has to do with Microsoft C + + +
    but I'm not sure which one I should install!
    Can you please help me?

    from : Solution to Microsoft Flight Simulator X ?side-by-side? Error ? Jon's View
    it seems like it's solved the problem
