During installation of VMware View Composer, I got this strange error message. I was not sure what caused this error . (0xc0000409) occurred in the application at location 0x754cfde3. I had followed all the steps. I was using an existing composer database, I thought the installation will overwrite the database. Initially, my thoughts were either due to database or due to the OS I am seeing this issue. Deployed a new VM got a new database and still the same error message.
Google search did not yield any result about this error message. Finally I thought to make changes to the User account Control Settings under Control Panel – > User Accounts – > Change User Account Control settings from default to Never notify.
This change did the trick and I was able to install Composer on Windows 2008 VM.
