"Application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect".

This has loomed up following a recent Windows update.

If you download a program from the internet then try to install it then you get a message similar to the above. It does not install anything.

It seems to be caused by a faulty Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable package. The quickest 'cure' is to go into Control Panel then Programs and Features then REMOVE ALL Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable packages.

Then - reinstall them all. I found a single source here - https://www.techpowerup.com/download/visual-c-redistributable-runtime-package-all-in-one/
