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.
