Windows Vista Home Premium 64 Bit
Comodo CIS ver. 3.11.108364.552 (fully updated); (Virus Signature Database Version 2169)
I first downloaded CSC ver. 2.0.107697.4 and it ran fine on my system after some initial updating. However, when I clicked the “Check for updates” button, it updated and promptly gave me the following error message:
(File location: C:\Program Files X86 …)
The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more information.
I thought I’d post in this forum about my experience when I saw an updated version of CSC (2.0.108716.5) was available. So I downloaded and installed this new version. I was disappointed to see the same error message when I tried to run the application.
Any help or advice will be most welcome. Thank you in advance.
I read about this today on line. They recommended downloading and installing vcredist_x64.exe.
Installed vcredist_x64.exe. , removed the old version, rebooted and the new version installed. Hope this will work for you.
Yes, it allowed me to install the up-date on my 64bit Vista Home Premium, before i installed it i was getting the same side-by-side issue.
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86). It address the side-by-side issue according to the overview at Microsoft Down Load.
I must apologize but i entered vcredist_x86.exe on my last post, it should be vcredist_x64.exe, There is one for each system at Microsoft Download Center. Gets confusing.
I am going to ask this question in the bug forum when i find time. I am new to this forum and learning where to post. I hope this works for you. This problem was driving me crazy before i found this on line in another forum.
IMPORTANT: If you have installed previous pre-release versions of Visual C++ 2008 or Visual Studio 2008, such as Beta 1, Beta 2 or Community Technical Preview (CTP) builds, then you must uninstall these versions via Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel before installing the final released version.
