System Attendant Fails to Start with Error 14001: the application has failed to start because its side-by-side
After upgrading the exchange server 2010 SP2 servers to SP3. Everything went well after 6hr 30 min SP3 finally installed successfully, however after the new update “Microsoft Exchange System Attendant Service” do not want to start.
While trying to start the service it threw an error at every time it failed. Error 14001: the application has failed to start because its side-by-side…
The fix was very simple.
Download and install Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x64) and start the System Attendant.
