The reason you received the side by side (sxs) use systrace to trace the error is because the program you tried to start needs one of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributal packs whether it be the 2005, 2008, 2010, x86 or x64 versions to run; This also involves .Net Framework.

Some questions and possible courses of action:
  • You could check in Event Viewer under Windows Logs" >"Applications" to see if the "program you need" is listed as a sxs error, it should tell you in "Details" which pack you need. If there are details please upload a screenshot of the error so we can help you decipher it. How to upload a screenshot or file.
  • Check to make sure you are up to date with Windows Updates. Check for any C++ or .NET updates that you may have hidden. Force a check for Windows Updates, Windows may see that this "program you need", needs a particular C++ or .NET version and offer it to you.
  • When you installed "this program you need" did you notice if it asked you to install any C++ or .NET packs? If it did and you did not I would try uninstalling the said program and then while reinstalling add those packs that it needs.
  • Finally, Make sure you have the .NET feature turned on; Go to Windows Features - Turn On or Off and find the box for .NET 3.5.1 and put a check in its box. You can safely uncheck the two features that are listed under it unless this "program you need" has anything to do with Windows Communication Foundation HTTP activation.
This worked for me, ty very much. <3

In order to help others that may be in the same situation; Could you elaborate as to which of the four courses of action helped you or was it a combination of the four?

If you did the reinstall from a backup you might want to check it to make sure it has Visual C++ 2008 on it, if not you may want to make a new backup.

Thank you for posting back!
