    Side By Side Error 59 Trying To Install Dragon

    Hello Everyone:

    I am trying to install Dragon Naturally Speaking 11 to my Windows 8 Machine

    It was installed at one time.

    Then, I got a wierd dialog box from Office 2013 that asked me if I wanted to do something to...I don't even remember what it said. I clicked yes to it because I was trying to get Office installed.

    Then the next time I went looking for Drgaon it was no longer installed.

    So I ran the set up to reinstall it and it is giving me a Side By Side Configuration Error.

    So I did what the message said, and checked the event viewer.

    It said that the Error was Error Code 59, and I have no idea what that is.

    So, I ran sfc and scannow.

    It said everything was cool.

    So, I then ran the sxs thing. But to be honest, I wasn't too sure what I was looking for.

    So I went to look for System Restore, and I dont even see the option to return the computer to a state that it was before Office 2013.

    So I decided to just run System Retore to the earliest possible date.

    Then System Restore doesn't go past initializing for about an hour. So I can't even get this thing to run.

    This is a new laptop and I have never had so many frustrations with it. Windows 8 is a killer.

    Any way, if any one has any suggestions on other stuff I could try that would be the coolest.

    Your best/safest/quickest option is to restore the laptop to its original factory settings and start over. An SXS error is rare but serious - and there aren't any tools available for fixing problems with the WINSXS folder.
