Hello, recently I have been having an error when I try to start programs on my computer. No matter which program I try to open I receive the error "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect."
I have searched around and it seems like the solution to my problem is to reinstall the VC++ redist files with vcredist_x86. Unfortunately whenever I try to open the installer to install the needed files, I just receive the same error message. I am unsure how to how to fix this problem when I am unable to install anything on the computer. Any help would be appreciated.

Hello -
First disable your Antivirus program as this can block the downloads - Information on A/V control (temp disable) HERE if needed

Now select the download for your particular Operating System, and follow a link -

Error message: "Side-by-side configuration is incorrect"
The machine is missing the correct C++ runtime components for your type of system. (x86 or x64).

Installing the following update resolved the issue.
