Quicktime failed to start side-by-side configuration incorrect

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I use quicktime to play some of my videos but just this morning when I tried to open it, it is throwing up this error, I didn’t do any changes in it's settings and it is working properly the other day, help anyone?


C:Program FilesQuickTimeQuickTimePlayer.exe

C:Program FilesQuickTimeQuickTimePlayer.exe

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

Quicktime failed to start side-by-side configuration incorrect


Hello Aron,

To resolve that issue, try using the following workarounds:

Method 1:

  • On your computer, go to your C:Program FilesQuickTime folder,
  • After that you will need to double-click on the QuickTimePlayer.exe file.
  • See if you get an error message then.
  • In case you do, you will need to check if it is the same error you are getting when you launch from the Start menu.

Method 2:

  • You will need to try and uninstall the current version of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable you have on your computer.
  • After that you should download and then install the 2008 version which you can get from the following Focus support website: http://support.focus-home.fr/vcredist_x86.exe
