Re: side-by-side configuration error
I think that you have to install the VC++ 2008 runtime redistributable package on other PCs which doesn't have VC 2008 installed. Download the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86) from here and install it in your pc. After that check whether you are facing the same problem or not and reply back here.
