# Sidebyside Configuration Error- NEED HELP!

Q: Sidebyside Configuration Error- NEED HELP!

Hi there guys.

One of my applications, Microsoft Flight Simulator X was working normally for awhile until I encountered a problem where it says the application could not start because its side by side configuration is incorrect. I cleaned everything up by doing "sfc /scannow" in Command Prompt and it solved the problem.

However, when I tried to open up Microsoft Flight Simulator for the second time, the error occurred again. Can I please help some advice on how to stop this re-occurring problem?

Thanks,
Jozef

A: Sidebyside Configuration Error- NEED HELP!

Welcome
It will take a little while, but I will refer this to our forum specialist in this area.

Yesterday I received the Sidebyside Config error when launching ESET NOD32. Reinstalled the program (per ESET's advice), but to no avail. Uninstalled NOD32 and installed Security Essentials. No problem. Just went to launch Quicken and got the SidebySide Configuration error message again. After yesterday's venture I came to find that these problems are so involved that a complete Vista reinstall may be the only hope. Before doing that, a couple of things:
1. Is this a system problem that will soon affect every .exe?
2. Is there a fix, because I have read attempts that all have proven futile?
I will try anything to try and fix it because I would prefer to keep Quicken on my system and I am skeptical that a reinstall will work.

Invalid Xml syntax. Ive tried a few things to fix it already but to no avail....if anyone could please help me fix this I would greatly appreciate it! A:Installing language software, sidebyside error or D:/ not a vald win32 I have two suggestions: 1. this "sxstrace.exe tool" seems to be a command-line tool. This means, that you are not supposed to click on it, but rather open the command line window (Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt). There you have to type sxstrace to start the tool. Most likely, you will have to first navigate to the folder where the tool is located, or type the explicit path (something like "C:\Program Files\...enter the correct path here ...\sxstrace"). Quite possible the tool has some options as well. You should read the description of the tool at the developers website. 2. It seems that restoring Windows did not uninstall your first installation of the language software. So now you have two copies of it installed and the app does not like it. Try a complete uninstall. For this, you should go to the developers website and find instructions. Usually complete uninstall instructions are provided or they might have a tool to do this automatically. Alternatively, you can use Revo Uninstaller to do the job. Once the app is uninstalled, you can use CCleaner to make sure that nothing is left over. After that you can install the app again. Hopefully this time it will work. 1 more replies Answer Match 49.98% Hi, after I installed the latest Vista updates and rebooted, I get an error when I try to open Chrome, see attachment for how it looks, and for the event viewer error log. Strangely, when I try using Chrome from a different user it works, which is how I'm on the web right now. From the research I did on this problem it seems there's a program version conflict, whatever that means. It mysteriously started once the updates were installed, even though Chrome wasn't updated now. I ran SxsTrace Trace -logfile:SxsTrace.etl command in the Command Prompt, and I copied the report log below. I also attached a screenshot of all the updates that were installed in the last round, after which the problem started (disregard the one highlighted in blue, I just happened to click it).

My question is, I booted the Vista disc and when I click repair it doesn't even find the C: drive...when I try and run the BCD fix from the command prompt screen, it says it found 0 Windows installations...would this indicate a faulty hard drive?? If so, I dont mind replacing the drive, I just wanna make sure this is the issue before I spend the money to replace it... Much thanks for any help anyone can offer! A:Boot Configuration Data Error I'm not sure what BCD fix you tried, but see if it is this one and if not, try this one. To run the Bootrec.exe tool, you must start Windows RE. To do this, follow these steps: (you need a Vista Installation Disk to do this) 1. Put the Windows Vista installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer. 2. Press a key when you are prompted. 3. Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next. 4. Click Repair your computer. 5. Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next. 6. In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt. 7. Type Bootrec.exe, and then press ENTER. Note If rebuilding the BCD does not resolve the startup issue, you can export and delete the BCD, and then run this option again. By doing this, you make sure that the BCD is completely rebuilt. To do this, type the following commands at the Windows RE command prompt:  bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup  c:  cd boot  attrib bcd -s -h -r  ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old bootrec /RebuildBcd See if that works. If you don't have the disk (or that didn't work), try EasyBCD http://neosmart.net/dl.php?id=1 and see if that helps resolve the problem.

Try disconnecting all peripherals (hard drive and optical drive) and see if the problem changes or stays the same.
