When I try to run a Command window (cmd.exe) inside a specific VE, I receive the following error:
"The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000142)"
Even when I replace the cmd.exe file with the one from the Hardware Node itself, I get the same error. Note:
The most frequently such problem appears on Chinese localizations.
The reason of the error message is based on the national fonts applied in the cmd.exe properties.
Since the Command window fails to start, it is not as simple to go back to cmd.exe properties on Fonts tab to correct this. To correct this, it will be necessary to stop and unmount the affected VE. After this, you will need to go to c:\vz\private\VEID\root\windows\fonts and remove all non zero-size fonts. When VE is started, the cmd.exe command will work properly since the default fonts are applied again.
