I am recieving the same error when I try to open both Windows Media Player
and Windows Photo Gallery. This error has only occured in the past month when
I first started using Vista both programs worked great now I get the
following error :
The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration
is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more detail.
In the event log there is nothing any help on how to fix this problem would
be greatly appreciated.

The "side-by-side" component is associated with the Vista Windows Resource
Protection (WRP). You may have a corrupted file in the SxS folder.

To resolve this issue, use the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe) to repair
these files.
To do this, follow these steps:

1. Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, click All
Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run
as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a
confirmation, type the password, or click Allow/Continue.

2. Type the following command, and then press ENTER:
sfc /scannow
(The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces
incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.)

This may take some time to run, so be patient.

Let us know the results.

Okay I tried to do the sfc scan it began the verification phase got to 43%
then it says windows resource protection could not perform the requested
operation. I tried it a couple more times just to see if it would work and it
still comes up with that it can't perform the requested operation. Any
suggestions on how to fix that or any other suggestions on how to fix the
problem would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Nora,

You may need to run CHKDSK (Check Disk) first, then run the SFC /SCANNOW command. This tutorial will show you how to run the CHKDSK.

Try running sfc /scannow in Safe Mode.

Reboot the computer and start tapping the F8 Key as soon as the computer
starts to boot. Keep tapping the key until you see a black screen with a
menu.

Use the Arrow Keys to select Safe Mode. It will take a few minutes to boot
to safe mode. Once there, follow the same steps to run the system file
checker.

Thats the problem there is nothing in the event log about the side by side
error which is one of the reason i have no idea how to fix it. Also I'm using
Windows Vista 32-bit Home Premium edition.

do you have an OEM or retail edition of vista? if vista came preinstalled on
your PC, try contcting the manufacturer of the PC for help. they might have
a solution. or they may just tell you to reinstall the OS eventually...
another idea is to update the OS with all the availible updates if you have
not already done so. that always helps with something...

I think the problem is related to Vista's (Windows Resource Protection) aka (Data Execution Protection) in XP, I had a simular problem in XP and disabled DEP to fix it, I haven't tried it in Vista yet, I am getting the same error code in Vista too so I will be trying this when I get home. I will post my findings.

Ok in my case this was caused by DirectX not being updated, once I upgraded my DirectX problem was solved.

side by side error fix

tap F8
choose repair my computer
choose command prompt
type chkdsk /f c:

once its done with the process just type exit again. it will boot back to windows and goodluck!

it worked in my computer. hopefully it will work for you too! = )
