“SideBySide” errors on Event Viewer

Asked By 70 points N/A Posted on -


I am using Windows 7 x64 on an Acer 8943g laptop and I was browsing the Event Viewer. I noticed a stack of errors with same nature. These may be caused by some rarely used programs or apps on my machine. I have posted a snap shot of the error in Event Viewer with sample.

I noticed this errors before but didn't pay any attention to it, but now it's starting to get me worried. By the way, I found that the nature of one of the errors is to "get a detailed explanation from sxstrace.exe”. I found it from Start Menu and the command prompt window just disappeared after a short flash when I tried to open it. I don't know what to do with these errors.

Thank you in advance.

“SideBySide” errors on Event Viewer



Since the command prompt has disappeared after a while opening it there may be chances of system getting affected with viruses or malware. For this please do this

  1. Check for viruses with Anti Virus software, If found please remove it.
  2. Update the system with 'windows software updates'.

For the problem with errors in Event Viewer you may follow these steps

  • Use the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe) to confirm which file causing the problem and then replace the file.

For this open a command prompt and run this as an administrator, If prompted for password, type the password then click ENTER. Then type the following command in command prompt and press ENTER.

sfc /scannow

It scans all protected system files and replaces the incorrect versions files with correct Microsoft versions.

  • Side by Side errors may come from comparability issues of  Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistribute. Please uninstall Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistribute from Control Panel->Programs->Programs and Features and in reinstall latest Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistribute version in the system.

If the above doesn't resolve the issue please do a clean installation of OS by inserting Windows 7 Cd into the system.
