Error message:'The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect' not able to run Scrivener application.

Original Title: Side-by-Side configuration error.

Hi,

 I am running Windows 7 (home) and have downloaded a new program (Scrivener). When I try to start it, I get this message: The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail.
 I have downloaded C ++ 2010 (x86) and installed it, but I am still getting the same message. 

 I'm grateful for any help.  
Thanks

Hi MTate,

Are you able to run other application correctly?

You may uninstall Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Package from Program & Features. Thereafter, install the latest version & check if the issue persists:

Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86)


Refer:
The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect’ error related to MMC.EXE programs and weird cause & simple solution


Hope the information helps.
