side byside configuration error in office 2010

i thought i would take a break from trying to get office to work, so, i installed CallofDuty Black Ops on the computer and the problem went away. it seem that the game had visualc++ 2010 reddistributable and by installing that it fixed the problem. odd isnt it?

Didn't you fix this back in December, the 28th to be precise?
MS office 2010 error: the application failed to start because the side by side configuration is incorrect

Still, it's good of you to share it.
