Tedious to resize 2 WordPerfect document side by side everytime

Question: Tedious to resize 2 WordPerfect document side by side everytime

I am using a 30" at 2560x1600. Each time I open Word Perfect X3, and open 2 documents, I have to resize it to fit approx. 1280x1600 for each document..

Now, if WordPerfect X3 itself is opened at 1280x1600, and I open 1 document, no problem.

But if I launch WordPerfect X3 to 2560x1600, then open 2 documents, I run into the above problem, so I have to spend time to resize them every time.

Should WordPerfect X3 automatically memorize the size setting of 2 document?

When I insert a flash drive into one of the dead ports, initially the message pops up indicating that the computer recognizes something has been inserted into the port, but then it immediately disappears and the port is dead. I went to Device Manger-->Portable Devices and tried to fix one of the three dead ports. At some point (after I scanned for hardware changes, I think) it did show the drive letter, but it had a yellow triangular error-message  indicator. I right-clicked and selected Properties, and it said "This device cannot start (code 10)." Then the drive letter disappeared, though it has come back sporadically. I hope this is clear. Would appreciate any ideas. Thanks. Jane Doe

G'day everyone - I suspect this issue will be a tough one to get help with!

I've attached a screen-capture of a Microsoft Office Excel 2007 spreadsheet I'm working on at the moment. As you will be able to see on the screen-capture, I've marked the areas of interest and will explain here...

When I enter a name in this column (marked as '1'), I want the spreadsheet to check another column (marked as '2') to see if there is a match. If there is a match, I then want the spreadsheet to check the column marked as '3', and subtract that amount from the column marked as '4'. If there is no match between the column marked as '1' and the column marked as '2', I don't want anything to happen.

I hope that made sense, and if anyone can help me with a solution here, I would greatly appreciate it.

So recently, I received a blue screen of death. The error was something along the lines of:
page_fault_in_nonpaged_area

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.
I then tried to start Microsoft Word but I received the following error:

"The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect";

I receive that error for most of my other programs.

When I tried to run event viewer, it says:

"MMC could not create the snap-in"

Please help. Is it possible to restore my applications without reinstalling them all?

I bought a Dell Inspiron 5545. From the first day I lifted the screen of the laptop, there was a click from the right side where the hinge of the screen meets the base of the laptop. I just assumed this was something internally that kept the screen in the open position because there are so many other items click when you open them. However, over the past few weeks a gap started to appear that has become increasingly larger between what appears to be the bottom of the case and the top in that same place where the right hinge is.
C'mon Dell.  It is a design flaw and should be fixed as such.

I have a spreadsheet that has nine columns. Once of these columns (the fourth column) is used for a single character as a method of immediately letting the user know that the row in particular is different to the others. So, there's nothing different about that at all.

What I'd like to be able to do, though, is to have the other eight columns (the three columns before the column mentioned above and the five after) all change their background colour when the single character is entered in the fourth column.

So, if the user inputs data in a new row and leaves the fourth column cell blank, nothing happens. If the user enters the symbol (let's say it's a "#"), then the nine columns will all change their background colour to red.

If anyone can help me with this, I'd greatly appreciate it.

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?

Hi,
I recently bought my Dell XPS 9560. My dell xps screen appears cooler on the left side and slightly warmer on the right side. It is not noticeable in any color but when I visit websites with a white background like google, I can notice that the right side is slightly warmer (yellowish) which is distracting. Any idea on how should I proceed with the issue?
Thanks

Answer:Dell XPS 9560 Screen - left side cooler and right side warmer

If "recently" is less than 21 days from shipment and from Dell directly, the best option is to contact customer support and have the system replaced.
If it's more than 21 days from shipment, the warranty will cover the display replacement, which is the only solution -- though if the system is new enough, you're better off having it replaced than repaired.

With the introduction of the new and clever 'Snap' functions, two basic functions for organising the desktop seem to have been lost. I and others have tried asking the MS Community, but are struggling to find the vocabulary needed to ask the question, and are getting only non-answers.
So, I will try here..Questions:Noting that these very basic features have been available in all previous versions and editions of MS Windows:
1. How do I now, in W10, get two desktop app windows (DAWs) to share the desktop equally? This used to be achieved by having two DAWs active, and then selecting 'Show windows side by side'. Now, in W10, selecting 'side by side' results only in a cramped tiling of active windows.
2. How do I now, in W10, get DAWs to 'remember' their last setting of size and position, such that re-opened DAWs will open with the same size and position that they had when last closed?
3. Could someone give a direct answer to these two questions, providing the solutions as steps to be taken in W10 - or, will someone confirm that these features are no longer available, in W10?

Answer:Updated: W10 App Windows: 'Side by Side', & Setting Default Size/Position..

If you drag App1's title bar all the way to the left side of the screen, it'll "snap" to the left. The same for App2; drag the title bar all the way to the right side of the screen for it to "snap" to the right. (This can also be done using the keyboard short cut "Win + left/right arrow")
The old function for right clicking on the task bar and selecting "cascade windows, show side by side, etc" is still there, but now it allows for more open windows, and depends on your screen size.
As far as I can tell, open windows do remember their last position.

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.

First post...

I am coming to you as a last resort. I built my own PC and installed Vista Ultimate 64 bit OEM edition. Has been working fine for ~2 years.
Now every time I attempt to open a program I get the error "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more detail".

The only progam that is barely working is IE 64 bit edition. I cannot download or run any files.

Microsoft wants 59$ to speak to a technical support representative(What a joke, multibillion dollar company wants extra $ for tech support??...).

Doing a ton of research I have tried various things to remedy this with no avail. System restore did not work. Doing a sfc /scannow in command prompt does not work, it does not even run. Wasted 3 hours of my life doing a thorough checkdisk as well.

The error in the event log is as follows...
Error in manifest or policy file "C:\Windows\WinSxS\manifests\x86_microsoft.windows.c..-controls.resources_6595b64144ccf1df_6.0.6001.18000_en-us_72e6f33f34dfabb9.manifest" on line 18. Invalid Xml syntax.

So the problem has to do with this manifest file? I really am clueless as to my next move. I can not download and run anything at all.... Can I do a Vista repair installation with my OEM version?

Should I try and get my hands on a cheap upgrade version of Windows 7?

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...

However the problem now is once your at the desktop all programs when you try to run them pop up with an application failed to run side-by-side configuration is incorrect. these problems are not apparent when the computer is ran in safe mode, but I can not figure out what to do. I checked the registry HKLM software windows nt logon and explorer.exe is the value.

Was this computer upgraded from Vista to Windows 7? If so that may be the cause. You can try doing a Repair Install of Windows 7 to see if that corrects the problem.

Hi

Spanking new A100-PSAANE (on Vista Premium Home Edition) problems:

1) LCD display -
Suddenly the display starts moving sideways as if you are in a merry-go-round and everything is running sideways! When I close the lid and open it again all is well and the display is exactly the same as it was before the problem started!

2) Hitting the scroll bar causes restore -
Quite often hitting the scroll bar causes that window to restore and clicking the same again causes the window to return to maximize.

Anyone knows the solution to these please???

Did you try to change the screen resolution??? What graphic driver do you use???

Regarding point 2.) What scrollbars do you mean exactly??? Did you mean the ?internet explorer? window scrollbars or the "Windows Explorer" scrollbars???

Finally it would be very interesting to know if these issues happen on fresh recovered Vista OS. I would like to know if the same happens on notebook with factory settings!!

After I reinstalled Windows XP Home on a P4 2.4 G computer and checked Quick Launch in Taskbar & Start Menu Properties, I double clicked the Quick Launch divider in error, and Quick Launch displayed on the second row of the Taskbar.  I was finally able to get Quick Launch on a single row of the Taskbar.  However, it is now on the right side of the Taskbar, and I have not been able to move it to the traditional left side.  While it does not create an operational problem, I am accustomed to Quick Launch being on the left.  Quick Launch is not locked.  How can I get it back to the left side of the Taskbar, with open programs showing on the right?

Answer:Move Quick Launch From Right Side To Left Side Of Taskbar

Click and drag the divider, that should move the toolbar about.Just drag it to its normal position.It works for me, anyway.Hope this helps.

If you use the windows key and the right or lef arrow key on an open window that shortcut will move the window to the left or right side depending on which arrow key you have used.

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.)

Hello Everyone,

This is my first post on Major Geeks and I would like to say thank you to everyone upfront.

Recently my computer had a BSOD on startup and afterwards I have been getting a lot of error messages that say a program cannot start because it's side by side configuration is incorrect. A different forum had me try things such as sfc /scannow but everything I have tried so far has either failed due to the side by side configuration or has not been able to find a problem. My .net framework is currently down and I can not get it to start up and most of my drivers are also down. I cannot access the internet through a web browser due to the side by side errors; however, my computer does have an internet connection. I also cannot install any new programs or activate AVAST for the same reason.

I followed the instructions from this post http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?t=139681 and I have attached what I could. Out of the 5 scans listed, only Roguekiller and Hitman Pro worked. Everything else failed due to side by side errors.

Again, Thank you for any help you can provide.

Secondly, what I find here in the forum on the subject tells me there has been no solution...also am unable to find any on the 'net'. I think it acts like a virus and is spreading...

So my issue is that when I log into my computer it will some times (not all the time) revert from a side by side multi monitor setup to a over under setup. Like if you go into screen resolution settings I will have it set to monitor 1 on the left, and monitor 2 on the right, then when I lock the computer and then log back in, it will have monitor 1 positioned over the top of monitor 2.

I'm thinking there is possibly a default that it keeps going back to, but I'm not sure where I would look for that, other than the screen resolution settings. Another possibility for the origin of this problem could be Microsoft User Experience Virtualization Agent, which we have installed on all our computers here to synchronize the various setting we have connected to our profiles. It looks like UEV might synchronize monitor layout settings, and with that it could be some how defaulting on an over under set up. Overall I am unsure of what to do about his.

Any one have any ideas?

Hi there,

So in XP one was able to select open windows from the taskbar via holding CTRL and left clicking on each one, then right clicking and tile / arrange vertically the selected windows...

In windows 7 I cant seem to do it automatically. Yes i can do it manually with three or more windows, but i shouldnt have to.

I cant get three or more windows to tile next to each other, i can only get two windows to go side by side via the snap feature.

Any ideas on how to get three or more windows side by side semi-automatically?

Thanks for reading.

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!!!!

Hey Guys,
I have a problem.   Last night, i was up all night, using my pc. I had quite a few tabs open (using chrome), and every once in a while, the cpu had a lot of Work to do, so the pc would respond more slow. During one of these slows, something different happened. Quite a lot of icons just turned into one of the old school Windows icons, most (if not all) of them being .exe files. I wanted to fix all of this, so I used Bullguard, and after that i wanted to use CCleaner. CCleaner didn't Work. Neither did the other programs. They gave me an error in the lines of:

"This version of this file is not compatible with the version of Windows you're running. Check your computer's system information to see whether you need an x86 (32-bit) or x64 (64-bit) verion of the program."

Also, whenever i shut down my computer, or boot it up, an error pops up from LogonUI.exe:

"Error: C:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\windows live\wlidcredprov.dll is either not designed to run on windows or it contains an error"

I figured out how to fix this part. I simply installed Windows Live Essentials.

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.

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.

After going back to the log files to see when the errors exactly started i came across over 500 errors in a single day. They were caused by Symantec. Literally 50 a second for ten minutes these errors were logged, i paged through them and it took me forever.

Activation context generation failed for "C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Symantec Shared\coShared\Browser\2.0\CoIEPlg.dll".Error in manifest or policy file "C:\Windows\WinSxS\manifests\x86_policy.8.0.microsoft.vc80.crt_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.3053_none_516e2c7b0f48c07f.manifest" on line 3.

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?

I downloaded and installed Ubuntu and sectioned off a part of my hard drive for it. I intended to have it set up to run both windows 7 and linux together and let me choose which boot disk I wanted to use at start up. Ubuntu took over and so I read through some forums online. I can now get to the Windows 7 loading screen but it freezes there. I have my install disc and was hoping someone could assist me with getting windows 7 back. I do not care if I loose Ubuntu. I am currently sitting with the Administrator: X:\windows\system32\cmd.exe from the System Recovery Options Menu with my Windows 7 Disc in the tray. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated (if i can save my HD great if not I can live with that).

Answer:Unable to boot Windows after installing linux to run side by side

You'll need to boot System Recovery Options to run Startup Repair repeatedly.

Make sure the Win7 partition or its 100mb System Reserved partition (preferred) is marked Active first: Partition - Mark as Active (Method Two)

If this fails after three separate repair attempts with reboots using DVD or Repair CD, boot free Partition Wizard bootable CD to doublecheck which partition is set Active, then click on Win7 HD to highlight it, from Disk tab select Rebuild MBR, OK, Apply, reboot.

If Win7 doesn't start, boot DVD/Repair CD to run Startup Repair 3 times again.

If these fail, change the Active flag to Win7 partition if it is on SysReserved. Try Rebuild MBR and if necessary Startup Repairs again.

Linux can corrupt Win7 beyond repair so you may need to copy out your files using Win7 disk or Paragon Rescue CD: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

Then run full Factory Recovery from its partition at boot, or using disks you've made or order, or use the Win7 Install DVD to clean reinstall following these steps: Reinstalling Windows 7

Ok so I am going to go straight into the good stuff.

Essentially I launch Dragon Age and get an error about side by side configuration. I have already done an enormous amount of research on this subject and have found that the problem is usually attributed to the C++ Redistributable from Microsoft.

I tried to remedy this problem 3 different ways (manually working from a system restore point where Dragon Age & Bioshock 2 did not work, but Mass Effect 2, Call of Duty MW2, and the Original Bioshock were still fully functional) this system restore point had the Microsoft 2008 C++ Redistributable installed, and again the games I listed in parenthesis were working fine.

I first uninstalled the 2008 Redistributable and downloaded and installed the 2005 Redistributable, restarted the computer (even though it did not prompt me) and ran into a massive error. Essentially, this install made every game unplayable (all of those I listed above).

Next, I uninstalled the 2005 Redistributable and reinstalled the 2008 without a restart, and tried to launch every game listed above. Of course, I was back to square one, with Dragon Age and Bioshock 2 still giving me the side by side configuration error.

Lastly I tried launching each game through the program 'depends.exe' (using the .exe) to see exactly which dependencies each game required. Of course, both Dragon Age and Bioshock 2 gave me the side by side configuration, telling me that a MSVCP80.dll file could not be found with... Read more

First of all, sorry if this doesn't belong here guys.

So guys, I'm looking for "tv box" style device that would let me show 2 completely different video inputs on a single display either side by side or top/bottom.

After looking online, one of the first results were from a company called Colorado Video, and this is their most recent product:






Split Screen mode allows portions of each of two pictures to be displayed in a corresponding portion of a video display. This mode can split a video image, wipe or display two video images or a dual video image, one image over the other, top to bottom, or side by side, to make portions of each viewable on a single monitor. Images from two cameras can be displayed on one video monitor. This adjustable video screen splitter can split an image, mix, wipe, overlay or switch an image or display from two different high definition video sources, creating dual video images or pictures on one screen or monitor. A front panel control selects whether the screen is split horizontally or vertically. A control knob determines the proportion of the screen allocated to each source, adjustable from 0% to 100%. The user can freeze either of the inputs and either input can be viewed exclusively by push of a button.

Answer:2 different inputs shown side by side on a single display?

If you're willing to settle for something like PIP on a TV, you can save yourself a lot of money. That's the only "just works" solution I can come up with, but you don't have any real flexibility in the size and placement of the second image. You could probably also cobble something together with a video capture card, but when you factor in how much time you spend on putting it together, you probably haven't really saved any money.

I have coded many different NFC cards to bring up a certain video after being scanned. Is it possible to have each new instance of my video application placed side-by-side with the others?(the size of each instance would somehow have to be controlled as well for this to work I would assume..) I am trying to have a projector display all these videos from my laptop. I can easily get one video read and displayed but when trying to have each instance project at the same time it is much harder because I cannot control how the instance is created.

Ultimately: I need an application able to make each of these new video instances put beside the other one in real time-each time another NFC card is scanned, while being projected.

Info: I am using the VLC media player and obviously have mutliple instances allowed....but unfortuantely I cannot control where they are placed when they are created.

Trolling for a few hours I found the most common solution to be installing vcredist_x86 This file wont install it gives me the same error.

So I downloaded vcredist_x64, but this file is built with a 32 bit self extractor and results with the same error. I Tried uninstalling the Visual Studio 05 but it gives me a windows installer can not be accessed.

Is there some trigger that can enable windows 32 bit installs to work and I can install vcredist_x86? Thanks.

The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect.

WHAT I TRIED SO FAR:

-Downloaded and Installed Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86 - For 32 Bit Systems).

Can someone please help - thanks!

But when I try to run the installer, I get the message that the application has failed to start because its side by side configuration is incorrect.

Support told me to try to install the drivers manually using the device manager (!) but as I pointed out to them that does not work because ....the drivers are tied up in the exe file.....however....

Then it was suggested that I install C++ 2008 redist. That did not work.

Hi,

I am a student and need to install many types of software over and over again.
If I understand it correctly, windows makes backups of all DLL-files to prevent the DLL-hell scenario from happening.
But as I need to install/remove many programs I end up with a lot of garbage (I asume) in my winsxs folder.

Right now I have a winsxs folder of 11.3 gb, an application folder of 7.5gb on my 120gb ssd (windows) drive and about 117gb off apps (and games) on my storage drive.

I formatted my laptop this summer but I am concerned that my drive will get flooded with storage data faster then I can remove apps from my C-drive.

What I would like to know is:
- In what case does winsxs backup all my DLL-files
- How can I prevent windows from doing that? (protable apps?)
- How can I prevent the DLL-hell scenario while preventing sxs growth?

The problem started today. None of my microsoft office programmes open up - Word, Excel etc. The suite has been istalled on my computer for the last year and have had no problems. However, yesterday when a update for my sony reader failed to complete I had to 'end task' the sony update - could this have corrupted something? I've removed the sony software from the computer but still nothing works. Everytime I click on the word/excel etc icons to open up the applications I get this message: This file does no have a programme associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Set Associations panel.

So I accessed the control panel and looked over all these applications and the extensions. All extensions like .doc etc have the correct default programme - e.g. .doc is defaulted to Word. But the problem is that I can't even open up the Word application itself.

I uninstalled the microsoft office 2007 suite through control panel, rebooted the computer and reinstalled. And then I tried the following:-

- I did check out the event log and found this message:

MMC could not create the snap-in. The snap-in might not have installed correctly.

Answer:Side-by-side configuration problem and file association. Please help!

If you Google the last error message and the CLSID of {b05566ad-fe9c-4363-be05-7a4cbb7cb510} you will find lots of people with the same problem, but they don't all appear to have been "fixed" the same way.
Some involve a DLL file and others seem to implicate AVG.

I run a HP [VISTA-64] computer with HP Upgrade to WIN7 DVD. I have run the DVD a few times, and *basically* W7 is fine. There is ONE issue though. When I have a few family JPGs open and go to the T-B, click on 'Show Windows Side by Side', it does not work right, as it did in V-64. The last time I reformatted, then upgraded to W7, Side by Side worked *once*, then...never again. Almost seems like something else I run 'kills' the ability to view a few JPGs [comparing]. My Wife will not use this W7 computer until I get this squared away. I cannot find a thing about the problem, and nothing on the HP Tech URL either...

Any Help ??

Hi Everyone!

I have 2 screens open side-by-side so that I can verify any duplicate content. When I scroll either document, they both scroll which isn't very helpful.

Can someone offer a suggestion on how to stop the simultaneous scrolling?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

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,
My Logitech wireless mouse and keyboard worked fine on Vista 64 Premium. Since upgrading to Vista 64 Ultimate, I get side-by-side configuration errors. I've uninstalled Setpoint, downloaded newer versions, reinstalled, installed the C++ Redistributable Package, but nothing eliminates the error. Has anyone had any success in resolving this problem?

with windows 7 it was so easy, when I had two windows open, be it word, a browser or windows explorer to chose show windows side by side......they seemed to snap together or were easily encouraged to do so.

with windows 10 the two windows seem to stay over to the left of the screen and both only take up approx 50% of the screen....I try and stretch them to, which works of a fashion but not remembered next time I start the PC....

not sure urge if there is something I should be doing to make this work better...

thanks

Has anyone seen this before?
This seems to be happening more and more, I am using my PC (with Windows 8 Pro) as an HTPC and its connected via HDMI to a plasma TV so the PC is always on. Sometimes, when I go to use the pc I turn the TV on and then move the mouse around to turn the display on and I see the attached image, it looks as though the screen has shifted to the right and wrapped around to the other side.
I ran windows 7 with the same hardware on this setup for years without an issue. Any guidance is greatly appreciated.

Answer:Left side of screen rolled to right side of monitor..

Did you ever get any sulution for this problem ?

I have the same problem with my windows 7 ultimate, tried everything now, the last step i'm testing now is an older driver.

I used to be able to peruse both at the same time, but suddenly this feature does not work. I'd like to restore this feature to my word processing activity. I used to go to the View tab, then click Zoom, but the side by side feature doesn't work, & I don't know how to access it. Does anyone know how to do this in MS Works 9? Thanks for any help.

"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."

First of all, I've gotten this on at least 3 different programs. Everyone who's written about this seems to think it's related to their specific program...it's not! Secondly, what I find here in the forum on the subject tells me there has been no solution...also am unable to find any on the 'net'. I think it acts like a virus and is spreading...

What's up with this??? Does anyone know...? It has kept me from opening iTunes so I can't work with my iPad anymore. Certainly there must be someone knowledgeable enough to know what this is and what to do about it...right?:

You probably need Visual Studio C++ 2005 or 2008 Redistributable runtime files installing to fix this error:

When I tries to run Glary Utilities 5.46, the following error message appears.
'The application has failed to start because the side by side configuration is incorrect please see the application event log or use the command line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail'

I had posted a question in Microsoft Community and did what the support engineer said, including repairing corrupted files with RestoreHealth and re-installation in compatible mode, but the side by side configuration error still appears. What else can I do?

The following have already been installed. http://fud.community.services.suppor...9-a0777b03746e
