"The application has failed to start because the side by side configuration is incorrect please see the application event log or use the command line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail." for every application that i try to launch"
In order to diagnose this kind of erroros ( side-by-side ) I started SxSTracing , with the command you see below:
- SxsTrace Trace -logfile:SxsTrace.etl
- Then run you app which causing the problem.
- Once it is done press enter to stop SxsTrace.
- Run thic sommand to format log to readable format: sxstrace Parse -logfile:SxSTrace.etl -outfile:SxSTrace.txt
In my logs there was something like this:
"ERROR: Cannot resolve reference Microsoft.VC80.MFC,processorArchitecture="x86",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",type="win32",version="8.0.50727.4053".So I found correct one package ( Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package ATL Security Update ) and installed it.
