This is known issue that is caused by KB3045999:
The application was unable to load a required virtual machine component. Please contact the publisher of this application for more information.
However even despite uninstalling this security update, the issue returned with one of other recent security updates.
Does anyone know which one it might have been (past 2 months I guess)? Is there anyway to work around this problem apart from uninstalling another security update?
I have some legacy apps that I know I won't get updates for them but I need them to run occasionally.
