WORKAROUND: If you have updated your servers with the new versions of vc redist (2005 and 2008), everything should be okay. From 4.1.1 forward we have compiled to the new libraries from Microsoft. Previous versions of Archive Manager who utilize the Offline Client should be upgraded to the latest version of Archive Manager.
