Preferred Solution: failed to open the application because "the application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect.."

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

So, I had the same problem as above. I had developed a dll using Qt that worked fine on my machine but would not register on another. The familiar "This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect..." appears when I ran the depencency walker on the dll.

So this was the solution that worked for me, which may help some others see what's going wrong here:

Within my dll the manifest emedded read:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
<assembly xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1" manifestVersion="1.0">
<dependency>
<dependentAssembly>
<assemblyIdentity type="win32" name="Microsoft.VC80.DebugCRT" version="8.0.50608.0" processorArchitecture="x86" publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b"></assemblyIdentity>
</dependentAssembly>
</dependency>
</assembly>

It seemed that the assembly definition was not found upon my client computer. So then, from within my original computer's 'Windows\WinSxS' directory, I copied the 'x86_Microsoft.VC80.DebugCRT_1f...' directory and it's associated files within the 'Policies' and 'Manifests' directories onto the client computer. Once copied, the dll registrered fine.

Hope this helps...

Hello
I have come across a few similar posts regarding this error message but mine seems to display a different error message when using the event log. I have noticed that the error messages posted by other users displayed are quite different e.g. D:\3ds

I dont receive such a detailed error message. My error message in event log is: Activation context generation failed for "S:\spa\spa.exe".Error
in manifest or policy file "S:\spa\spa.exe" on line 0. Invalid Xml syntax.
I am using a software called premier spa and it keeps failing to open. 
I just wanted to post my error message and see if anyone has any suggestions on how to fix this problem. 

Thank you.

This is the error I get when I tried to install Avast on my cousin's computer. The same error message appeared when I tried to install it on my own machine but all I had to do was uninstall and reinstall to get it to work. I gave up with it for my cousin's computer and just used that one that they had installed on their old machine. I want to get rid of Norton on my laptop, but don't want to be left hanging with no AV if I get the same error on my laptop. Anyone have any insight before I do this?

Windows 7, on Toshiba Laptop, all of the recent windows updates have been installed.
I was having issues running the new zynga game on facebook, the ville. I assumed that it was a resource hog and didn?t like the laptop, and it was possible that I didn?t have the most recent installment of Adobe flash, so I upgraded that as well. It still wouldn?t run. So I decided to clean up the hard drive.
I used control panel to uninstall a game that the kids no longer play because it?s now obsolete. I also uninstalled Quickbooks (it wasn?t just quickbooks, it was a bunch of crapware that was installed on the laptop when we purchased it, but since we don?t use quickbook I figured we could get rid of it.) the only reason I bother stating all of this is because I believe in full disclosure. You never know which action caused the issue so it?s best to tell it all. Sorry for the ramble.
I have been noticing that the machine was running slower lately, so that is why I decided to de-clutter the hard drive.
After doing this and rebooting I found that I was unable to run Rockmelt, it came up with the following:

This morning I came into my office to find my pc (p4, win7) apparently in a loop. the cpu usage was very high on all four processors, and the disk usage was high as well. I tried restarting the computer but there was so much cpu usage that I couldn't even type. So after 10 minutes or so, I just pulled the plug.

The first problem was that Norton Internet Security stopped working. After an hour on 'chat' with Symantec, they reloaded the software for me and now NIS is working properly. But I still have (at least) two probems. (1) My RIMDeviceManager fails with an 0xC015002 error, and all my MSOffice 2007 programs fail with "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect."

I unstalled all the Microsoft C++ programs and then did an MSOffice "repair" and it looks like C++ Redistributable (32 and 64-bit) were re-installed, but Outlook, Excel, etc, still get the same error. Everything I've read about fixing the problem is way over my head (and I'm fairly technical). Does anyone have a clue what I should be tracking down?

When it restarted, windows advised me to perform a system file check. So I left my computer for a bit, and when I came back it was already at the logon screen. However, when I logged on and started firefox, first thing I noticed was that all my bookmarks and some extensions had been wiped.

How do I tackle this please!

Answer:Error message: "application cannot be opened as side by side configuration is incorrect"

Hi

To be honest I never meet such problem with the operating system but firstly I would recommend trying to repair the OS.

Boot up the notebook and press F8. Then choose option called Repair the Computer.
Now you will see a some options. Here I would recommend choosing the first option called: Startup Repair.
This option automatically fixes problems that are preventing Windows from starting.
But I?m not quite sure if this is good enough to fix your issue with the system.

If this does not help I would recommend reinstalling this Microsoft Works package.

This is kind of a pain. I can't find anyone out there except some C++ programmers that really talk about this problem. I have Vista Ultimate, 2 gigs of ram, 2 video cards in SLI, 2.4ghz X2 processor. All of my games and programs work, with the exception of BioShock, and now my windows update. I downloaded the demo yesterday from Steam, and got this messege

the application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more details

I thought this was a problem with the Steam download, so I went ahead and purchased the full game of BioShock. Got the same messege. I am really at my wits end. I have been at this since 10am and have gone nowhere... Thank you in advance.

Hi,

I can't seem to install any version of CCleaner and maybe other progs., too.

I'm presented with the following two errors:

1. "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail."

2. "Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access them."

I've downloaded the latest version - 5.04.5151 - to the downloads folder, as well as a copy of the previous version - 5.03.5128 - but neither will install. I uninstalled the previous version, in prep for the new one, but can't re-install it, not even via the original 5.03.5128 file I had saved months ago.

I Googled for some help and found Microsoft's KB on "Windows cannot access the specified path...":
"http://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2669244
I've been through 1 - 6, to no avail
Only 5 was relevant: I "unblocked" the file, owing to Properties stating "This file came from another computer and might be blocked to help protect this computer". It didn't make any difference, nor to 5.03.5128.

I Googled "...side by side configuration is incorrect..." and this is where I've come to a dead end.

I'd be really grateful for some help.

I don't want to uninstall any other progs and discover I can't re-install them, either.

Answer:"Side-by-side configuration is incorrect"

Good morning. Here are a couple of things to try:
1. Download and install Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable Package:



Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013

Access Denied



2. Run System file checker.


Press Windows key + X, select Command prompt (Admin) to bring up elevated Command prompt.In Command prompt type sfc/scannow and press enter.Restart the computer.
If no corrupted system files were found in the previous state, then I suggest you to try the following steps:

Open command prompt by pressing Windows key + X and selecting ?Command prompt admin?.In command prompt, type the following commands and press Enter after each command:
DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Scanhealth

DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth


Close the command prompt and restart the PC and check if it works.

You could also try running chkdsk /f /r c: (or whichever drive letter you want to check). You'll probably have to boot up using the "advanced options" and select "command prompt."

Hope these help.

Ok, so I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit edition.
Yesterday I opened FireFox and after a few minutes the program was not responding.
I then closed it, and when I tried to reopen it it said that FireFox was still running.
I went into Task Manager, Process, found FireFox and ended it.
Then when I tried to open it again, I received this error message.
So then I tried to Restore my computer to a previous date, but could only go back as far as that afternoon, because if I chose a different date I would get an error that it could not do it.
Next I hunted online for a solution, I found one that sounded promising.
The site said to go here and download this file. Then go here and download that file.
The link to the site is here.
When I try to follow those steps to install the files, I get this error.

Hello and thank you in advance for your help, I am in desperate need!

To be honest, I'm not entirely sure when this problem started as I haven't been on much the last week or so, but I've tried all the trouble shooting I could find but still cannot manage to fix this problem.

When I try to open Word or Excel I get an error message:
"The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail."

Not totally sure what that means, but I have ran an administrative command prompt of sfc/scannow, and all my bad files are fixed (at least that's what it tells me when I try to run it again)

I also read tips where it tells you to go to the Event Viewer to get more details on the side-by-side problem. Well this seems to be having a problem, too. I get an error message saying:
"MMC could not create the snap-in. The snap-in might not have been installed correctly.
Name: Event Viewer
CLSID: FX:{b05566ad-fe9c-4363-be05-714cbb7cb510}"

I did just get rid of the Scour redirect virus, and I'm 99% sure this was happening while I had that; not sure if it's related, but when I scan (and am doing another just to check) I come up clean.

Thanks again for your help!

OK, well this started today, probably something I installed idk.

Whenever I try to open program I get the error. side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application log for
more details.
To be more specific, it's anything that was not already open at the time this started.
So, mozilla, and some other random programs are no problem, but for example, these programs would not open.
winrar
system restore
regedit
event viewer
dxdiag
And even I tried to plug something in, I got an error about device detection

So, ok, no idea what the problem is, no specific solution found online, I resorted to safe mode.
I restarted, and I couldnt log on, I'm assuming because of winlogon.exe or whatever program windows uses to log me in.
OK, so now I cannot even get to the operating system
I decided to check out the windows repair menu.
Startup repair found no problems, ok, so I hate doing this but I decided to system restore to last week using the repiar menu.
Restore completed!
I still cannot log in though, it did not seem to help.

I'm am now running on my backup windows xp OS, and am unable to get into windows 7 pro x64

If there is anything I can do to fix this, please let me know.
So the most I can change is anything from the repair menu, and I can manage files from this OS.

I just joined the Forum in hopes I can find some solution to my "side by side configuration" problem in Office 2010. I saw your earlier posts and tried to no avail. Lots of time ahead this weekend hoping to find a fix - perhaps I should be redirected to a different forum?

Hello, and welcome to the Vista Forums!

Please have a read through this older thread by me. side by side configuration

Try Lorien's advice, then mine, for the first two answers. If that does not solve the issue, keep going with my advice, and post an SFC log (sfcdetails.txt), and the sxstrace.txt.

Also, could you give us just a few more details. I assume that the error message is "The side for side configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix the issue" Can you please confirm that, and that it occurs for Microsoft Office only, as far as you are aware.

I have extensively searched these forums for a solution to my problem but can't find it. I have found some similar problems, but none exactly the same, here is what happened:

I have a Windows7 computer running just fine. I pulled the hard drive out of my old computer and had installed it in the new one and it seems fine. I can access both drives and i all my files are there. The problem i am having is that i can't open any files from my old hard drive if the program they need to open is also on that old hard drive.

For example, my old hard drive has AutoCAD on it, my new hard drive doesn't. When i click on AutoCad i get the annoying "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect" message. This happens with lots of programs, not just AutoCAD. I have MS Office on the old hard drive but when I try to open a word or excel file it won't open. It's like the computer is trying to open files from my old hard drive with applications that are on my new drive. This is a problem because i cant afford to buy 2 copies of autoCAD and 2 copies of MS Office and 2 copies of every program i have.

I feel like there is a simple fix for this but i can't figure this one out.
Thank you for help!!!!

HI all,

Well my low post count is going to get a bit bigger.

On my desktop this morning I received this error,

The application has failed to start because its side by side configuration is incorrect.....
Spent lots of time googleing and have done disc checks, start-up repair sfc /checknow, (or something like that as that was this morning), and all came up ok.

Next coarse of action looks like un-install and re-install of the .net framework and the Visual C++. Now that seems like a good idea but same error is coming up when trying to run the installers as there .exe..

Only managed to get files of the net by laptop.
Looks like repair install might be next

Any advise on how to get the .exe files running would be great. As it seems Im going nowhere till then.

Thanks
Timon

Answer:Side by side configuration incorrect...? Error stopping 95% of .exe

Sorry, also cant uninstall anything through control panel ether... so sad.
Thanks

*Edit*

I had wondered if it could have been a bit of nasty software, as was opening up some links to some screen shots of TPB and had a few more pop ups than I was happy with... closed them all of cause and didn't end up with anything downloaded that I was aware of. Only bring this up as this error seems to be linked with software install problems too.

Thanks

Hello all,

Im sorry in advance if this is the wrong forum to post, but i think this problem has nothing to do with my windows version.
Im running windows 8 pro 64bit (updated from win7 pro), leggal install. Laptop is hp elitebook 8560w.

All started with a sudden restart (this happens usually due to some overheating problems of my laptop. Anyway, im used to it. When pc restarted i tried to run chrome. It poped up an error msg like the one in img. Thought its something with chrome. After that i tried opera, same thing happened. Problem is this happens for ALL .exe files, i cannot even start from control panel "Uninstall a program" or regedit. Only some apps run like paint, task manager, disk management and some of win8 useless apps like maps. I cannot enter safe mode either. (its shift+f8, right?)

Really dunno what to do, my hands are tight.
Just a note, i have loads of programs install, (mainly proffesional ones), like microsoft c++ 2008 and ms sql server.

Any help would be usefull.

p.s. sorry for my english

Thanks in advance

Hello,

I've really been having a lot of trouble with .exe files downloaded from the internet (i.e. program installers and the like). When trying to run any .exe installer an error message comes up that says:






Quote:
The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail


This seems to happen with ALL downloaded .exe installers (including Firefox installer, GameStop's app installer, game demo installers, etc).

I'm really stuck for what to do. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. Also, I cannot read any PDF files in Chrome or Firefox (says "Object label badly formatted"). Any help with this would be appreciated also (Cannot download new version of Adobe Reader anyway).

Hi

I cant remeber if i did anything out of the ordinary when it started, but some time ago(some time ago becouse i havn't had time to fix it) when i started my Windows 7 64bit ASUS laptop every time i opened an .exe file, it said side-by-side configuration incorrect. Later i found out it only happened to x86 programs. Don't know if there is an connection, but windows explorer wasn't working either at all after the same boot, but i managed to get it working again by disabling two shell extensions. (one preinstalled from ASUS, and one named XPClient.FileSystemBrowser.BackupContextMenuExtension.BackupContextMenuExtension)

I've seen some saying to reinstall microsoft visual c++, but as it isn't any 64bit installer, so its impossible at the moment.

(I already posted this in the general discussion, but i think it was the wrong forum, so i reposted it here. Is it possible to delete the previous thread?)

Any suggestions?
Thanks

Hi & welcome.

Have you set specific "Save folders for stored messages" created in Outlook on your computer? As these will be lost if you un-install Outlook!

On saying that my first thought & I think the easiest solution would be to un-install it & re-install it.

Please note the comment above about loosing stored folders & messages.

If in doubt, ASK. OK?

My start menu is working fine, but I have an issue where at times I open it and the entire left side (everything that's not a tile) is blank, and the entire start menu background has changed from it's dark theme to crystal clear. I close it, reopen it, and everything is back to normal.
Also, at times, while the start menu is OPEN the list on the left will vanish and the background will turn crystal clear again.
I have reported this issue to Microsoft, and have also reported exactly how to duplicate it so they can get it fixed in an upcoming build.
What happens is this:
1. I have my desktop background set up for a slide show.
2. Every time the background changes, it messes up the start menu. Start menu works fine between changes.
Perhaps they'll get that fixed soon, but if you open up your start menu and see parts of it missing, just close it and re-open it.

I was running VCE (Virtual Certification Examination) on a system with Processor 2.4 GHz and 224 MB of RAM and OS Windows Xp Sp2. The client runs successfully but designer and the server gives an error something like this:

"Application failed to initialize properly (0xc0005 or some this type of code). Click OK toterminate."

A friend of mine has suggested that RAM is less than needed. So, I tested on another system with 512 MB of RAM, where I got no errors.

Then I got another idea but I don't n know about its feasibility. The environment where I have to run VCE is a workgroup of 12 PCs each with 64 MB of RAM. Just like we can share CD-ROM drive, printer and scanner in a workgroup, cannot we share RAM of all these PCs to fullfill the requirement of VCE? 12 x 64 will give me a 768 MB of RAM. Is there any way out, please do share ASAP.

Regards.

Answer:VCE gives error "application failed to initialize properly...0xc00005"

There is no way to share Ram like you are hoping to do, sorry

I get this error message when trying to connect to my remote vista RTM
(Ultimate) machine.. It happens at random.. the only fix is to
remotely reboot the machine via a "shutdown" command.

It says to click ok to terminate the application, that only results in
a blank screen.


in the event viewer:

Faulting application atbroker.exe, version 6.0.6000.16386, time stamp
0x4549b800, faulting module USER32.dll, version 6.0.6000.16386, time

No real solutions here either:


http://www.eventid.net/display.asp?e...=1475&source=A...



I tried looking to see if there were any applications which may be causing this.. by going back to the first time this happened in event viewer/ installations history..

Only one major app was updated around the first instance.. it was Visual Studio 2005 Sp1 for Vista and the hotfix.. so this isnt something I can remove if it is the culprit.

What is Atbroker anyway.. anyone run into this and fixed it?

A simple reboot (remote reboot) fixes things, but potential lost data which isnt saved occurs.

Answer:Atbroker.exe "application failed to initialize properly" on remote desktop to vista

i wouldn't use remote desktop. try some kind of vnc app.

Hi,

After scouring the internet for countless hours i have decided to look for help here. I have had this problem lately with a few programs, most recently sibels 5 music notation software: When i install the program, the installation process seems to go smoothly enough, but when i go to start up the program i get the error message "The apllication failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click OK to terminate the program" Popping up twice and then nothing happens.

I have tried reinstalling the program, doing a system restore, scanning my computer for spyware/viruses (just in case:P) and running the program in different compatibility modes but so far they all produce the same original result of giving me that error message.

Any ideas on how to solve this predicament? All help appreciated.

Hello, archz3.

Please try the following:

1. Open your start menu.
2. Search %temp%, and press enter.
3. Delete the files in the temp folder.
4. Restart your computer.
5. Re install Audacity.

Also, cleaning out your %temp% folder every 2-3 days is good, it removes files that you don't need, freeing up some space on your harddrive.

This is my first post. Runnng Vista 32 bit along with the free version of Avast!. When attempting to open a pdf file - I get the error message "that the application failed to start because its side by side conifiguration is incorrect. See application event log for more detail". Well even if I could find that application log, I do not know what I would be looking for. I did attempt to repair the Adobe reader and finally uninstalled it. Any thoughts? I will add that I ran across an Avast Forum comment on a similiar issue that said to reinstall C++ 2008 for the 32 bit due to the fact that sometimes the Avast!5 installer does not always correctly install the C++ correctly. Sounds good, but I hate to take a chance that could make things worse.

Hello, 
 
     My Avast Antivirus will not run, now.  I tried to turn it on with Windows Action Center and received this message:
 
"This program will not run
The program Avast Antivirus provided windows to fix this issue did not run."
 
     I restarted my computer, Avast still did not show up in the taskbar, so I tried to open the program and got the following:
 
"C:\Program Files\AVAST Software\Avast\avastui.exe
The application has failed to start because it's side-by-side configuration is incorrect.  Please see the application event log or use the command-line  sxstrace.exe tool for more detail."
 
     This is in addition to some other problems I've been having; it's becoming ominously similar to a situation many years ago when my Avast, Malwarebytes, and eventually entire system became compromised by an extensive virus.  Details on my other recent issues can be found in my previous post here:  http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/632460/decompression-bombs-and-runtime-error-r6025/
 
Sorry for the lengthy post; I am still having trouble uploading screenshots.  Thank you for your time.  =)

Hi,

When I try to run my DivX plus player I get the following error message:

"Missing divxmain DLL:

C:\Program Files (x86)\DivX\DivX Plus Player\DivX Plus Player.dll

The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more details."

I have searched through other posts to try to find a solution to this but they all seem very specific to each problem and I don't want to do anything crazy that will mess things up even worse.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

adam

Answer:missing dll, side by side configuration is incorrect

Hello Adam and welcome to the forums

Side by side (also known as SxS) errors are extremely difficult to fix as it's very hard to trace the root of the problem. A good friend of mine has a wonderful post on SxS errors, so follow his instructions:

Answer:Window 7: side by side configuration is incorrect

Perform a check disk:

Use the steps below:
Open Computer by clicking the Start button, and then clicking Computer.
Right-click the drive that you want to check, and then click Properties.
Click the Tools tab, and then, under Error-checking, click Check now. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
To automatically repair problems with files and folders that the scan detects, select Automatically fix file system errors. Otherwise, the disk check will report problems but not fix them.
To perform a thorough check, select Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors. This scan attempts to find and repair physical errors on the drive itself, and it can take much longer to complete.
To check for both file errors and physical errors, select both Automatically fix file system errors and Scan for and attempt recovery of bad sectors.
Click Start.

Depending on the size of your drive, this might take several minutes. For best results, don't use your computer for any other tasks while it is checking for errors.

Update the .NET framework
Download and install the latest .NET Framework

Hello,

I've searched so many times on the internet about this I've lost count. I have been on every website possible and I still can't find a solution. Everytime I click on my Samsung New PC Studio or my AVG software, I keep getting this message: "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application log for more detail". I've tried numerous things, including going on Command Prompt, System Restore and I've tried downloading various packages but I still cannot find a solution to this problem. I've been trying to solve this all day but I've had no luck.

I have problem running any executable file, including opening zip files.

I have uninstall Norton Internet Security came with the Lenovo laptop, and install Avast free antivirus, everything fine after installation. But today when I start the laptop, all executable files cannot start, such as IE, Adobe, MS office, anything with .exe, and .zip. Error message is:

"The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more details."

I google a bit, one suggestion is to re-install the Visual C++ re-distribution, but the exe file cannot run, therefore re-installing is impossible.

There is another suggestion to reset the default file association for exe, tried that but no difference.

Couldn't find any other instance the same, look like my problem is more serious than other. Anyone has a suggestion?

Thanks.
Ken

Hello Kennlee, welcome to the forums.

While we wait for a guru to drop by, here's my $0.02. You're right, it looks bad. Are you able to run any Windows application that's already in there? Notepad, paint, calculator, solitaire, things like that?

So here is the problem I am currently having. I am trying to find another way to wipe our hard drives that is a much faster, easier way. Right now, all drives are encrypted with Sophos Safeguard 5.50. Sophos offers a utility, BEInvVol.exe (SafeGuard Enterprise: How to decomission a volume-based encrypted disk.) that deletes the encryption keys off of the drive. Since these keys are not backed up, if they are deleted, the information on the drive can never be recovered. Essentially, it is as good as wiping the drive. Only it'll work much faster than using a wipe utility.

Now, when I boot into our WinPE 2.0 disk, and I try to run BEInvVol.exe, I get this error "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more detail." I've done a lot of searching around, and have decyphered this cryptic message: I am missing certain libraries that this program needs to run. Specifically, when looking at the exe's hex code, and when running the program using sxstrace, I see I need the library for "Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)" which can be found at Download Details - Microsoft Download Center - Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) Now, here it the problem: I am running WinPE. I can't run this installer in that environment. When I try and run vcredist_x86.exe (the installer for C++ 2005 SP1) after WinPE 2.0 has booted up, I get this ... Read more

Answer:Side-by-side configuration is incorrect - From WinPE 2.0

Hello, and welcome to the Vista Forums!

Your tactical friending worked! I didn't see this thread before now! Really sorry for the delay!

VC++ 2005 SP1 contains 96 files.

Looking through their dependencies, there isn't actually anything too non-core. All of the dependancies may actually already exist on WinPE 3.1.

I shall see if I can get this to work on WinPE 2.0 and 3.1. I can't guarantee success, but I will give it my best shot.

I know you want this quickly, but the best way will be to mod the actual disk prior to running it.

I shall see if I make any headway, and report back in a day or two.

Thanks for giving a detailed post It really is very helpful!

Recently, I got a virus on my laptop. I had to re-format it with windows XP. When I tried to use my camtasia program (screen recorder) It said

"The procedure entry point WMCreateReader could not be located in the dynamic link library WMVcore.Dll."

I heard somewhere that if I downloaded Windows media player 9+ then it would fix the problem. When I went to the official Windows website, I downloaded the program and when I tried to install it I got this

"The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005)"

Does anyone know how to fix this? Thanks

-GallenUnlimited

Answer:"application failed to initialize properly..."

Welcome to TSF....

Goto add/remove programs and un-install camtasia program and then reboot the computer and then re-install the program and hopefully this will remedy the problem.

Answer:"application failed to initialize"

A blue screen shows that error? That sounds more like an error message that will pop up in Windows rather than a full blue screen. Are you saying that it also shows up in safe mode and you can't get into safe mode either?

So far I have done this and it did not help:

1. Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, click All
Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run
as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a
confirmation, type the password, or click Allow/Continue.

2. Type the following command, and then press ENTER:
sfc /scannow
(The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces
incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.)


FYI, She gets the message when trying to launch the Second Life Phoenix Viewer, however Second Lifes Viewer 2 loads without error.

I am going to perform a CHKDSK on her Lenovo as recommended in an archived thread from this forum and hopefully that will solve the issue. Can anybody think of anything else?

Hi,

I woke up this morning and found that many programs on my Vista pc aren't working coming up with the error message 'side-by-side configuration is incorrect'. It occurs on firefox, internet explorer, windows media player and a game I recently installed Evil Genius. It my be happening on other programs but I haven't across them.

I checked on other forums and they suggest uninstalling AVG (which didn't work) and the Vista website suggested a restore point but whenever I try and do that it gives me an error page briefly and then the computer restarts.

Help would be much appreciated.

programs affected include explorer.exe

When I try to get into Word/Excel/Powerpoint I get the side by side error. I've tried troubleshooting and following the basic steps in some of the posts here but no luck so far System restore does not work either.

I've got some logs here, I've tried so many things my head starts to spin, but hopefully they can give you an idea of what's going on and what I've done.. I think I've run sfc a time or two now and it looks like everything's fixed there.. but here goes..

Hello jhwkgirl. Welcome to the forum.

I took a quick look at this issue and found this:
Solved "side by side configuration" problem in Office 2010 - Vista Forums

It seems that it is important to uninstall VC++ completely before trying to install the download or update (see post #6 in that thread).

BTW: Is this Office 2010 we are talking about?
