The "side-by-side" component is associated with the Vista Windows Resource Protection (WRP). You may have a corrupted file in the SxS folder.

To resolve this issue, use the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe) to repair these files.

To do this, follow these steps:

1. Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as Administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow/Continue.

2. Type the following command, and then press ENTER:
sfc /scannow

(The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correctMicrosoft versions.)

This may take some time to run, so be patient.

Hope this fixes the problem.

Try this fix from Microsoft.  Some users have found it works.

Use the file vcredist_x86.exe if you've got a standard Windows setup (i.e. 32 bit, not 64 bit).  As always check the system requirements.

Side by Side architecture uses a trick in a file called a 'manifest' to call a special system file instead of the regular Vista system file (a .dll). The error is saying that finding that special dll written for that application is not working somehow. (side-by-side configuration is incorrect)

If you recently installed new software, like AVG Virus protection, remove it. If not, try to do a system restore (found in Start - Programs - Accessories - System Tools) back to a time when you know the system was working properly. This will not affect your data, but may uninstall software or updates installed after the restore date you choose.

If this does not work, you need to be prepared for the long version of this fix as it is very technical and very long. Let me know if you need more help solving this problem

Odd application failure... missing assembly?


Mark,

Do you have the Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable installed? The "Dependent Assembly..." error indicates that you do not have it installed yet. You can download it at the link below. Please report back with your results.
