Hi Everyone,

 

I'm new to ROF and wanted to give it a try.  So, I downloaded everything including an update. However, after the download I clicked the desktop icon and a window opened saying "This application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect.  Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail."

 

Being unable to open ROF I checked the internet and it's a Windows 10 error.  It says to download Visual C to correct the problem, but think I remember seeing the ROF installer apply Visual C++ during the first download.  Can anyone give me a helping hand on this lil' surprise?? 

 

Thx...

Welcome to the Forums!

 

You are correct that this is a missing Windows file issue, and normally (before the most recent game update or so) the game's installer would have supplied it and everything would have been OK.  However, based on some recent posts I've seen it seems that the latest update changed something to where part of the game needs the 2005 version and part of it needs the 2008 version, or something like that.  Check out this thread for details - I think there are links near the end of the thread to what you need from Microsoft and how to get them:  https://riseofflight...de#entry699562 

 

 

 

Good luck!

Thank you Panther, I needed the 2008 version.  Now I have to figure out the joystick, but this game has a great manual so probably not a big problem there...

Thank you again
