Made several attempts at packaging QuickBooks Premier 2021 in a clean hyper-v vm following best practices. I can launch the Intuit File Manager after deploying the MSIX to a test PC, however, the main program does not launch. Checking the application log, I see an event:

 

EventID: 33

Source: SideBySide

 

"Activation context generation failed for "C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\QuickBooksPremier2021\VFS\ProgramFilesX86\Intuit\Quickbooks2021\qbw32.exe". Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC90.MFC.processorArchitecture="x86",publicKeyToken="##########",type="win32",version="9.0.21022.8" could not be found.


In addition, I saw another Application Log error:

 

Source: .NET Runtime

EventID: 1026


As this is my first attempt at packaging an MSIX, I do not have a lot of experience, but this makes me think that there is a Microsoft redistributable that is not being captured. I have not been able to find any information online so I am hoping for some guidance here. Thanks!

Hi, this looks like the test PC is missing a dependency. Do you have .NET installed on your test PC?
