I am getting an error message when trying to open Outlook 2010 on my Windows 7 computer. The message states, "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office14\OUTLOOK.EX
E 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."
I saw in the event log viewer that side-by-side could not find a file for Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable, so I installed that.
I have tried reinstalling Office. I also read on one forum to try updating Visual C++ 2008, which I did. I read on another to alter a registry key for x86_policy.9.0.microsoft.v
which I did.
I may reimage. The computer may need it anyway. However, has anyone experienced this or have any other ideas i could try?
