evrytime i download a program, the installation file wont open. it'll end up saying

"This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling the application may fix the problem."

I have tried to redownload, but failed continuously.
I'll appreciate it if you guys have any tips/suggestions on how to fix this problem.

Regards,
matt

Check your system (chdksk, defrag)? Check Event Viewer for clues?

What files, specifically, failed to download/install?

What kind of internet connection? sometimes dialup automatically drops a download halfway finished making it corrupt which can cause any number of errors.

Nice work...I'm still trying to figure out why you suggested that download...and why it cleared up that situation. Can you explain a bit for my benefit, please? Thanks :thumbsup:.

Not sure being new to this board how tolerate the Mods are for off topic posting. A p.m. may be better as to the how and why.
The application configuration is incorrect posting of the problem provided the insight.

I don't PM and I don't expect posters to PM...defeats the purpose of the forum.

Sharing information, experiences, problems...

Most apps written with Visual C++ (except .NET) require the Microsoft VC++ runtime to work.
The error message given is one that gets thrown up if you don't have the runtime.

TBH, I've only seen that message before when testing Visual basic programs without installing them properly (not recently though lol), but VC++\VB work on similar principles, even if the languages are different.

@CTH_TOM: I'm presuming that's the rationale behind your suggestion, if not, feel free to correct it.

:thumbsup: Couldn't have said it better myself.
I had 4 or 5 possibilities but choose the least likely first, Visual C++ Libraries not being installed, as any other solution would have been for naught.

Anyone else with this problem, if installing the VC++ runtime hasn't helped, you could try the VB runtime instead\as well.
