Re: 'The application has failed to start because it's side-by-side configuration is incorrect
This problem has annoyed me for months now, so I decided to have another go and I have just worked out how to successfully fix this issue!!!!!!!
The file that has the problem is a manifest file that is required for any program written in Microsoft Visual C.
In my case the file existed but was completely empty. The file is "C:\WINDOWS\WINXSX\MANIFESTS\x86_policy.8.0.microsoft.vc80.mfc_1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b_8.0.50727.762_none_8a14c0566bec5b24.manifest"
As this is a system file, you cannot delete it from Vista (even with admin privileges) so first you have to take ownership of the file. To do, this follow the instructions on this link:
Once you own the file delete it and then reinstall the program that is failing (MS Flight Sim X Trail in my case).
Everything now works absolutely fine.
