Q.  "The application failed to start because side-by-side-configuration is incorrect" - how to fix an application that gives this error?

A.  From some quick reading this seems to be caused by DLLs that don't match.
Or perhaps a DLL that cannot be found.
When one of my applications got this error, I fixed it by removing the dependency on MSVCR80D.DLL

I have a page about how to do that.
