The following errors are seen when trying to run SigmaX, RegSigmaX or SigView.
The 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.

- SigmaX 7.09 on Windows 10 64bit
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 redistributable has not been installed. It appears that SigmaX requires this version to run.
Either the Microsoft C++ 2005 is not installed, or if it is, then the Service Pack 1 (SP1) is required to be installed.
This can be checked under the Windows 'Apps and Features'.
In some cases, Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package Security Update (x86) is required to resolve the issue. The 32bit (x86) version should be installed if installing Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 does not fix the problem.
