I have GM 12 64 bit and after windows semi killed itself and I did a repair install, I am no longer able to start global mapper. I realize I am probably missing some redistributable dll from microsoft, but does any one have any clues?
I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, I reinstalled the 2008 visual c++ redistributable, but its giving me no joy.
Thanks in advance,

The full error message is this:
"The application failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application even log of use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail"

I ran sxstrace.exe and it spit this out:

    Did you re-run the Global Mapper v12 installers? Those should install everything that you need However I have seen cases in the past where something got messed up in the Windows registry so some of the standard DLLs (the ones Global Mapper uses) aren't marked properly so no application that uses a particular version of them will work. These cases are a real pain to get working since the problem is in Windows and not something Global Mapper can control.

    Thanks,

    Thanks Mike,
    I did uninstall and reinstall at least three times to no avail. Also tried installing the v14 trial to see if that worked and to no avail.
    I am assuming windows has toasted some of its own components. Guess I should head over to MS forums somewhere?

    You might check the thread at http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-windows_programs/the-application-has-failed-to-start-because-its/ef9b01d5-3c18-479e-bf71-a9c28123c807 which has some solutions for Microsoft for the same problems. In the past when users had these issues the solutions didn't always work though. The problem used to be somewhat common but has almost completely gone away in the last 2 years. I suspect there was some commonly installed 3rd party application in the past that messed up the Windows registry and that has been fixed or something, but it's hard to say for sure as a good explanation of the problem has never been presented.

    Thanks,

    thanks.
    I had actually re installed the 2008 and 2010 redistributable packages a few times. I just uninstalled all the versions off my computer (somehow there were about 6 of each) and not GM12 works again!
