When I try to run or activate the software, I receive this warning: "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect."
This issue is typically caused by a conflict between the license Activation Wizard program and one or more of the files in the C++ runtime libraries. These libraries are part of the Windows operating system and are used, and potentially updated, by installing or updating several Microsoft or other third party products.
If you are experiencing this error when launching the program, the most effective method to correct this error is to uninstall and reinstall any Microsoft Visual C++ installations currently available on your computer before proceeding.
1. Open the Windows Control Panel and locate the list of installed programs.
For Windows 7
Click Start > Control Panel
• If viewing icons, click Programs and Features
• If viewing categories, click Programs > Uninstall a Program
For Windows XP
Select Start > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs
2. Scroll down to locate the Microsoft Visual C++ entries.
3. Select each one, starting from the top entry, and choose Uninstall. Do this for each entry, until there are no more Microsoft Visual C++ entries listed.
1. Install each of the packages listed below in the order they are listed. The easiest way to do this is to click the first link, choose to Run the file to install, then click the next link.
Note: If you are running a 32-bit version of Windows XP or Windows 7, it is only necessary to download the packages noted as "Redistributable Package (x86)."
2. Once every package has been installed, restart Windows.
3. Finally, launch the program, or run the Activation Wizard, again.
Francis, this article has been known to resolve the "side-by-side configuration error" and you also indicated that it worked for you. Now you are getting a different error when doing something else, hence my assertion that it is unrelated. I should have said it was a separate issue, not knowing for certain that it is unrelated. What I was trying to avoid was a discussion in article comments, which can be found while searching and may end up bringing other users to this article when they search for an error message not addressed by the article. Again, please post the new problem in the forum and we can take up the discussion there.
I don't know Matt how you assumed that the error message I got is not related to this topic "if" I just followed the instruction created by Tani.
I am receiving also this Error - Side-by-side configuration on Product Activation thus i followed his instruction and led me to something else and i just tried to fix it but not successful. Please read again my comment Matt and I hope you could help me resolve this issue.
Francis, I think the error message you're currently getting is unrelated to this article, and article comments are not ideal for the back and forth of conversation/technical support, so could you please post your comment as a new thread in the Electrical and Instrumentation forum?
Hello Mr. Tani!
I followed the procedure you created and it led me to some missing *.dll files which stops the Promis-e in loading. So what I did was I downloaded the files online, particulary the mfc110u.dll, msvcp110.dll, and vcomp110.dll.
After putting these files in the directory I restarted the system and tried to open the Promis-e again and it works. However when I was creating a NEW PARTS DATABASE I am facing an error.
I When I finished doing the Mapping from User1 to User45 and I pressed the “finish” button the error appeared.
