I was installing Avast trial version on my PC and came across this error.
MachineIdCreator Application has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
First I couldn’t find out the source of this error and tried to ignore it. But it popped up again, so I decided to nail it down.
In the error window when I clicked on the details I came to know the real culprit.
Source of error
It turned out to be the Avast antivirus which I was installing on my PC.
You can’t easily find that it is Avast. MachineIdCreator.exe application doesn’t give any more information. but if you look at the avguidx.dll it has got AVG which is Avast.
This doesn’t stop Avast installation and installation goes through.
