Activation context generation failed for "C:\Program Files\Compaq\Hpadu\bin\hpaduesxi.exe".

For the last three months, I have started to see this error message on our HP ProLiant DL380 G7 server, which acts as a host server running Hyper-V and a few guest VMs. The OS is Server 2008 R2
 
I have read somewhere else that Event ID 33 is logged in the Application log when you start an application that has versioning conflicts but if everything is working fine not to worry about it.
 I'd rather not  have that error in my EV.
 
I couldn't find any specific information about this error in relation to hpaduesxi.exe (the RAID controller software).
 
Thanks!

hpaduesxi is for VMware, I can't see how you have an EXE of that name on your server.

You're right, we don't use VMWare. The file is located in C:\Program Files\Compaq\Hpadu\bin so it seems to be a HP Array Diagnostics file.

I would just delete it and then uninstall the ADU and reinstall it again, latest ADU is here .

I think the proper name is just hpadu.exe, certainly doesn't have esxi tacked onto the end of the name in the Windows version.

Just spoke to HP; they also recommended reinstalling the ADU software. The file is actually called hpaduesxi.exe and we do not use any VMWare product.
Will upgrade the software in the next couple of days and then update this thread.

Removing the ADU and reinstalling it will not remove that incorrect file, you have to delete it manually.
