Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {D6BCA079-F61C-4E1E-B453-32A0477D02E3} Openwebkitsharp3.0

If you encountered an error while running OpenWebkitSharp in your workstation or production server with the specific details below:

Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {D6BCA079-F61C-4E1E-B453-32A0477D02E3} failed due to the following error: 800736b1 The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x800736B1).

The solution is to download Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package MFC Security Update here: Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable and install it in your server/workstation.

    1. I haven't worked on OpenWebkitSharp for a long time now. The last VS IDE I tested with OpenWebkitSharp is VS 2010/2012. Maybe you could come up with a workaround for that. Let me know. :)
