Install failed

Sep 8, 2010 at 10:22 AM


I have just started using Win7 64 bit, and ran into the problem where the AssemblyVersion is not displayed in the file properties dialog.  This shell extension looks useful but unfortunately the install fails with:

"Module C:\Program Files\PowerExt\PowerExt.dll failed to register. HRESULT -2147010895. Contact your support personnel."

I'm using  Windows 7 64 bit with .NET framework 3.5 installed. Any ideas?

Have you installed the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable? It's required to use this extension. There are links for downloading it on the main page.

Here's the link for x64:
