Symptoms

A computer that is running Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 crashes when you try to start a ClickOnce application. Additionally, you receive a Stop error message that resembles the following:


STOP: 0x000000F4 (parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4)


Notes

  • This Stop error describes a CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION issue.

  • The parameters that are displayed in this Stop error message depend on the configuration of the computer.

  • Not all "0x000000F4" Stop errors are caused by this issue.

Cause

This issue occurs because of a manifest parser issue. When a manifest contains both Windows line endings and Unix line endings, the manifest parser reads memory at random on the computer. Therefore, when the ClickOnce application triggers a call to the manifest parser, the computer crashes.

Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 file information notes


Important Windows 7 hotfixes and Windows Server 2008 R2 hotfixes are included in the same packages. However, hotfixes on the Hotfix Request page are listed under both operating systems. To request the hotfix package that applies to one or both operating systems, select the hotfix that is listed under "Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2" on the page. Always refer to the "Applies To" section in articles to determine the actual operating system that each hotfix applies to.
