Receiving an error on VAIO recovery tool

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I am running Vista and Just I have used the VAIO recovery tool on it.

But when I want to start some programs, it shows the following message:

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

Please see the application event log for more detail.'

I am in doubt why this occurs. Please help someone.

Thanks a lot.

Dear User,

The most common reason to have this error "Side-by-side configuration is incorrect",

Is because your System doesn't have or missing the correct c++ runtime component .

Try installing it using this link, I am assuming that you are having a x86 version of windows.

If not you can easily select before you download it.

Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)
