HELP: Parser Returned Error 0xC00CE556 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Lately, whenever I start up my laptop, I get the following message: 

    "Error parsing

    C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v.2.0.50727\config\machine.config

    Parser returned error 0xC00CE556"

    Normally, I used to just close it and carry on with my work. It didn't seem to be affecting anything so I used to ignore it. However, today I decided to install and play a GTA game and whenever I click to open the application, the same parser error occurs. Please help? 

    I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit operating system.

    Thanks in advance!

  • You can check the integrity of your .NET Framework(s) as follows:

    Use this tool:

    http://blogs.msdn.com/b/astebner/archive/2008/10/13/8999004.aspx

    Run the tool with .NET 2.0 selected, then post the first 12 lines AND the LAST 12 lines of the tool log here.

    If the test app fails (shown in the last 12 lines), follow the link below.

    In Windows 7, .NET versions 2.0/3.0/3.5 are built into the OS, so you must use a special procedure to attempt correction:

  • Hi Littlepixel,

    From the error message, we see that we need to repair your system file.

    You can try the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe).  To do this, follow these steps:

    1. Open an elevated command prompt.

    2. Type the following command, and then press ENTER:

        sfc /scannow

    The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.

    Let us know the result.

    Best regards,
