    When I try to launch Flight Simulator X, I get the message "The application has failed to start because it's side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more detail."

    The event log reveals:

    Activation context generation failed for "G:\Microsoft Games\Microsoft Flight Simulator X\fsx.exe". Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC80.MFC,processorArchitecture="x86",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",type="win32",version="8.0.50608.0" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.



    I have no idea what this means or how to fix it. Is anyone more knowledable than I am? I am running Windows Vista Ultimate

    You might try going to the registry and removing Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable 2005 and reboot. When you are booted back up, re-install Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable 2005. If this does not work, try and remove your antivirus, and repeat the above, then re-install you antivirus. Hope this helps.
