Hi there, I had installed Office 2010 more than 6 months ago. Somehow two months ago, I receive the following message when I tried to open up the application (MSWord, Excel, Powerpoint, etc.):

"The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application even log for more detail."

I have not install any new application since I have installed the Office 2010, except Window Updates. I reinstall office 2007 and I have no problem running it. :confused:

I would appreciate any advice as how to resolve the above errors.

Uninstall all Office programs. Install only one at a time. If you want 2010, install it again (unless you have used up your trial time).
