The Application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey

    Revently I put my computer on sleep mode and closed my computer. When I opened my computer to use it the computer started freezing and eventually crashed. I chose to start Windows normally on the boot screen and everything worked fine except the computer was running way slower than usual but after it finally loaded up completely, i tried to start an application well a game a matter of fact ( if the game matters it was League of Legends and Mabinogi) but immediately after the game launched a error message prompted immediately The Application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. I went to the event log to check the current events that occured and when I went to narrow the search down to the logs of today and I had multiple Event 41 Task Category 63 error messages. What does it mean and how do i fix it. Here is the information of the most recent event 41 (63) details

    Log Name:      System

    The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
