Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 redistributable has not been installed. It appears that SigmaX requires this version to run. 


Install Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)

In some cases, Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package Security Update is required to resolve the issue. This should be installed if installing Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 does not fix the problem.
