I could open this program 2 months ago, but now it doesn't work on my PC. This message appears every time I want to open it:

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 details.

I don't know what to do now. Please help me.
