It will allow you to take control of the file and/or folder with Administrative Privileges as some files require this in order to function correctly.

Do you have User Account Control (UAC) enabled or disabled ie: does a security window popup when you go to open certain software programs ?

There are some fantastic Tutorials written by experts on this site should you require further information on 'Taking Ownership' in the 'Tutorials' link at the top of this page.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

If you are on 64-bit, and you still have the sidebyside error, and you haven't tried 2005 VC redistributable, try this.

This fixed my sidebyside app errors (Nvidia GeForce GT 540M on Dell XPS L502x... dream-machine that crashes on extended display / openGL screensavers! one fix leads to another issue.. extended display fixed by underclocking GPU using nTune, which in turn genereates sidebyside app issue... fixed with VC'05.)

Very unprofessional of these guys to a) not include required libraries and b) not know why their code isn't working
