I have migrated Vista Home to Vista Premium and my SQL Server and Visual Studio 2008 was not able to start and giving me error ‘This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect, the application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect’. I then check the Event Viewer and find some Dependent Assembly were missing.
Activation context generation failed for "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\PrivateAssemblies\LanguagePackage.dll". Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC80.CRT,processorArchitecture="x86",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",type="win32",version="8.0.50727.1833" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis.
