Hi,

I got this error: "Activation context generation failed for..."

I know this is not a real problem, but this happens a lot to my customers and "spam" their log, there is something i can do about it?

Thanks,
Omri

Hi Omri,

Nope. Please take a look at the following similar forum threads for more information:

Hi,
Thanks. In one of the post you said that changing the dll name will work. do you know if it works?
If so, do we need to change the *. manifest files as well?

Hi Omri,

Nope. As you see, we didn't get any feedback on this forum thread.

I have just created a new XLL add-in project and the manifest file is untouched there (adxloader.dll.manifest). So, I can make a conclusion that there is no need to rename the manifest file.

Please let me know whether it helps.
