    Windows 8 side by side configuration is incorrect


    Hello,
    Well today when i came to run 2 of my programs i got an error which says "
    The application has failed to start because of its side by side configuration is incorrect.
    Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more details."
    so i searched a bit about the error and i found that i have to reinstall Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package 2005 and 2008 so i did and that didnt fix the problem.

    You need to figure out which specific version you need. This can be difficult. There are many small incremental versions.
