      +Theatre Mad Old video, old encoding. Look for latest videos when looking up how tp's. Video is out of date anyway and won't work for anything but Vista. What you do is the same but how you get there is different. Also there are other things which it could be that I didn't include in this video so.

    Will this work for a Windows 8.1 64-bit computer?

    • brickfilms1954

      By the way if you don't feel safe downloading the torrent there is also another method where you go to and download the Visual C++.

    • brickfilms1954
      brickfilms1954 3 years ago +1

      Well so far it hasn't given me any viruses. And Avast Antivirus hasn't detected any malware so I presume it is safe.

      @saad mohamad I am the original up-loader of this video, just on a different channel. I deleted his comment because I don't want people downloading that because there's no way of telling if its safe or not. The only way to check if its clean is to do a registry scan of your computer but....if you didn't already have a scanner installed that had a record of what your registry(at-least the important stuff) looked like before it was altered there's no guarantees. You can also scan the folder you downloaded or do a full computer scan which might see if something was buried inside of it but that won't change the registry back.
      You should have stock Microsoft applications like Windows Defender and what not already installed. Just make sure they're turned on and they might catch something if it was changed but really there's nothing you can do...just be careful in the future. Especially with Pirate Bay, if you have no idea what you're downloading or looking for.

      +saad mohamad That Torrent you just downloaded could have any kind of worm inside it and you just installed it and allowed it to change things in your registry. NEVER download something like this from 3rd Party, especially because you can get this directly off Microsoft's website. Good luck to you.

      +W. Lynn Then you have a different problem that you probably won't be able to fix without a restore but try this first.

      +laythisdown Im the idiot yet you are the guy that can't see this isnt for windows 7. I'm the idiot but you are the guy that doesn't know how to work a computer in the age of computers. Keep telling yourself that IM the one thats the idiot in this situation. I'm glad I wasted your time, thanks for the view count and comment you idiot.

    Hi - didn't work for me. My default was teh same number as my highest registry number to start with. So then I took it to a pc repair shop. After spending some good money and getting it back fixed, I try to open a pdf and still side by side config. error! I'm running windows vista. what should I try now?

      You should have clicked the Windows 7 link in the description and read the comments on the video, I went over all different ways to fix the problem. May have saved you a few dollars. Happy you got your problem resolved though.
      Just for sake of helping other out, did they tell you what they did to fix your specific problem?

    My Acer 5735 aspire, came up with this "side by side confguration error", and i struggled to overcome it. My brother suggested i try a simple Windows restore, ( start,accessories, system tools, windows restore), and it worked a treat. Up and running again in no time. It's very annoying if you don't have a clue how to fix it and can't access the internet.

      redownload mugen from softpedia or whatever, it's one of the first links in google. sometimes misplaced files in mugen cause side-by-side errors, especially if you downloaded a modded version of mugen

    Steam has a side by side error that doesn't seem to work. For me it's a no error in the steam client when launching the game. When I go into the appgames directory, running the darkcrusader.exe file it gives the "...side-by-side..." error. Unfortunately, my register is current and I'm on a clean machine install. I also ran the windows update as administrator that's supposed to fix the issue to no avail! :(

    Worked for me after some tweaking. First just search for "Winners". It is somewhere else in Windows 7 registry apparently. Go to the event viewer first and see in the side by side error message which policy it is. Not always the same HyoriGene mentioned. Mine was VC80.MFC.
    Then find that one and enter the highest number in "Default"
    That worked for me.
    Thanks so much you saved me 8 hours of reinstalling from scratch.
