Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library Error Launching Spice Client in IE9

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • When trying to open the console window of a particular VM ("ITSPCVWP11") at around 9:47 this morning, I got a runtime error and the console would not open.
  • I first tried in the user portal and then in admin portal with identical results.
  • In the user portal if I changed from Spice to RDP, the console worked. Screen shots are attached.
