Caffeine doesn't start (side-by-side-configuration) Empty Caffeine doesn't start (side-by-side-configuration)

Hi Tom,

after years of usage I am having a problem with caffeine.

On my Windows 10 (1903) machine it doesn't start.

The error message states:
The application could not be started because the side-by-side-configuration is invalid. More information in the application protocol. More Details can be shown with the tool sxstrace.exe. (Translated from German error message)

Do you have any hints for me?

TIA!

Sebastian

From the stickies support/knowledge base : KB00085 - Error about side-by-side configuration being incorrect 

https://www.zhornsoftware.co.uk/support/kb.pl?q=00085


According to   https://zhornsoftware.forumotion.com/t106-caffeine-doesn-t-start-erorr-about-vc  
You need the 32bit version of the microsoft package . ( i guess caffeine is a 32bit app )

Great. That worked. I hope some more people will find that now.

@Sooyke Thanks a lot for your help.
