    Side by Side error for a game application

    Hi for some reason I am getting the "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail." on a game I want to play and I'm not sure how to fix this. I attached a photo of the error I get. Any help would be appreciated.
