Side by Side error - Event 33

I am trying to troubleshoot a problem with an application (it's an .exe file).  When I run the .exe, I get an error that says "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect.  Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail.  The event log has an Event 33, SideBySide error that says:

Activation context generation failed for "C:\Inspire3x\PatConvert.exe".  Dependant Assembly Microsoft.VC80.CRT.processorArchitecture="x86",publicKeyToken=Ifc8b3b9a1e18e3b". type="win32", version="8.0.50727.6195" could not be found.  Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.

I don't know what this PatConvert.exe file is, but it has to do with a manufacturing process one of our engineers is trying to run on his Windows 7 64bit machine.

I don't even know what a sidebyside error is or what it means.  Any ideas?

Didn't fix it, but I am out of the loop on the issue for now so I can't do any more troubleshooting.
