When i'm trying to run anything from the MMC or any MSC related apps in my local account (An Administrator), all i get is an error : The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000102)., and if i do try running mmc.exe, all i get is a Blank MMC, and the taskbar name "Console1". But if i do try running it thru an elevated CMD, i can start them fine (Example: compmgmt.msc). I have tried running SFC, DISM, and chkdsk /f /r, but they all do return a "normal" answer (all is fine).
SFC/ SCANNOW: no integrity violations
DISM: all is good
chkdsk/f /r - initially what caused the problems in MMC, and other areas of the laptop. I ran a chkdsk command from my laptop when it suddenly caused a bootloop. (Stuck in Preparing Startup Repair)
regsvr32 msxml.dll/msxml2.dll.msxml3.dll: msxml and msxml2 not found in sys32 folder. only msxml3.
Workarounds: 1. Start .msc's from Elevated CMD
Other related Problems Found:
- Missing MSXML and MSXML2. (but sfc and dism still does not recognize these problems)
Is there any fix to these problems? Aside from a full reset (a last resort)?
