Windows 7: Cannot run Calcuduko Program

Cannot run Calcuduko Program

Hi All
Just downloaded Calcuduko from CalcuDoku Project Top Page - SourceForge.JP
and I get the following message when trying to run:
C:\Program Files(x86)\CalcuDoku\calcudoku.exe

The application has failed to start because its side-by-side cofiguration is incorrect.
Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxtrace.exe tool for more detail.

I have downloaded the Linux version from the same site and it behaves perfectly.

I am trying to help out a friend with this problem - I normally use Linux Mint so am not Windows savvy.

Many thanks in anticpation for any help or suggestions

W7 Pro SP1 64bit

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

The app claims to want Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86) installed...
...but that did not make it work for me inside the Virtual Machine that I tested in.

Maybe other members can help you out.

If it just wont work on Windows, then VirtualBox and a Linux Mint VM might be the way to go.
