Debugging the Dreaded 1935 During MSI Install

Sign in to follow this  


This is one of the most annoying issues when coping with installers.
At least its better than "your boned, good luck finding it;" however,

Error 1935. An error occured during the installation of assembly component

is pretty frustrating.

Luckily, for once, it actually put an error in the event log.

Syntax error in manifest or policy file
"C:\windows\winsxs\installtemp\\Assembly1.dll.manifest on line 2

Anyway, the WinSxS HRESULTs are pretty hard to find. Anything SxS is--if you
do a google search with adding a TON of details: the only hits you are going
to get are "Can I delete winsxs?," "Flight simulator didn't install,"
"Fix 1935 errors now!", etc.

Depending on which version of visual studio you are using: these will not
be defined in a header...

Here are the Fusion/SXS codes that I can find:
