Application failed to start - side-by-side configuration incorrect
"The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application log for more details."
The problem is only with the third party applications like Adobe reader, Phototshop, etc. Rest of Microsoft's built-in apps, tools and games work fine. For troubleshooting i checked the event viewer and found the following error message listed:
"MMC could not create the snap-in. The snap-in might not have been installed
correctly. Name: Event Viewer. CLSID:
Any help would be appreciated.
Re: Application failed to start - side-by-side configuration incorrect
First of let me explain the cause of the problem. In Windows there is a file called "Manifest" where side by side architecture uses a trick to call a special system file instead of the regular Vista system file such as any .dll. According to your Error message mentioned above says that finding that special dll written for that application is not working somehow.
As per troubleshooting you should you should try uninstalling all Adobe products, remove their left over fiels as well from the registry using disc cleanup and re-install them again. BTW, is ths problem only with Dobe products or all Third party applications? If yes, then something has changed those special application files. Perhaps disk corruption, perhaps conflict with something new. You are probably on the right track, trying reinstalls. I realize you probably don't have 'original media' for the ASUS Splendid Bachache, but I would guess that was it.
