Application Failed to Start - SIDE BY SIDE error


I am fairly new to FM, I have just bought a copy of Filemaker Pro 11 Advanced


I have installed it on my iMac and my PC (Windows XP)


I developed a database app in OSX (Snow Leopard), transferred it to my PC, then made a runtime solution.


When I try to run it on any other Windows machine than the one I created the runtime on, it will not start. Windows (Vista or XP) gives the error me4ssage:


"The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log for more details"


I cannot find any application event log.

My searching on the net tells me this error is fairly common(Sigh) but not many people have the dead-set solution. I understand that it is the dreaded DLL files that cause it, but how to fix?


If anyone has the answer, you will save a lot of people a lot of time. Is this a FM or MS thing? (In this case).
