    I encounter this error suddenly. I attached the SxsTrace.txt file which is a log for error.

    Activation context generation failed for "System Default Context". Dependent Assembly Microsoft.Windows.Common-Controls.Resources,language="*",processorArchitecture="x86",publicKeyToken="6595b64144ccf1df",type="win32",version="" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.

    This seems to be the problem. It wont even let me re-install visual basic and error message keeps popping.
    Hoping to help me with this. Thanks!

    Hiya and welcome to Tech Support Guy

    Are you still having this problem? If so, can you tell me what version of Windows you're running? Also, when you tried to uninstall VB, did it give you an error, or did you try re-installing over the original program?

    Also, are you trying to open a specific program for this to fail?
