The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142) Error message when starting Azure Storage Emulator RRS feed

  • Question

  • I keep getting this error when starting the Azure Storage emulator on my windows 8 dev machine.

    The eventlog contains many errors like these:

    Windows API call WaitForMultipleObjects returned error code: 575. Windows system error message is: {Application Error}

    The application was unable to start correctly (0x%lx). Click OK to close the application.
    Reported at line: 3621. 

    I noticed that my sqllocaldb V11.0 instance was not running. After starting my sqllocaldb V11.0 instance the emulator starts fine. After few minutes the localdb has been is shutdown again and these errormessages popup again.

    Does anyone else have this problem ?

  • Thanks for your reply.

    Sounds very silly but I have rebooted my machine and since the reboot I didn't have this problem anymore.

    When the issue returns I will try to follow your directions.

    Best regards,
