I have a Visual Studio 2008 C++ application I am trying to run a new computer/fresh install of Win7 64 ultimate.
Note: Visual Studio 2008 is NOT installed on the new machine on which I am trying to run the executable.
I get the error below->
"The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application even log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail."
Do I need to install something like the follwoing on the new machine to allow my executable to work?
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) or
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x64)
Is this built into Win7?
If my executeable was created on a 32bit XP machine, but my new computer is Win7 64 bit.... should I install the 32bit redisribution package or the 64 bit one?
