Windows 7: Side by side Configuration

Side by side Configuration

Hello,
Whenever I attempt to run files such as
MSCONFIG.exe
RSTRUI.EXE (system restore)

I get a

C:\Windows\system32\returi.exe

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.

they are both in the system32 folder, maybe something regarding pathways or something. I have no idea.

Ive been digging for a bit, attempted to reinstall Microsoft Visual C++ but did not work.

I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate (x64)

No; you have to run the wizard from Windows. Boot into Windows, insert the DVD, and run setup.exe when prompted.
