Hi! Whenever I try to start Visual Studio, this message comes up:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0.\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe

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

I used the command promt and typed in sxstrace.exe and it just came out with loads of technical stuff.
I would have posted the error code if I knew where it was

Had exactly the same error.

I tried repairing it to fix the problem but it didn't do anything.

When I uninstalled and install again that did the trick. I think Microsoft should solve this issue asap.
