KBI 310223 Side By Side Error When Executing SETUP.EXE On W2008 Servers


Argent Advanced Technology – All


14 Sep 2010


The following error is displayed when attempting to run the SETUP.EXE in the Argent Installations.

A corresponding entry in the Application Eventlog is also seen.

Technical Background

The error appears due to the “Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC80.MFCLOC could not be found“. This is a Microsoft Runtime Library that the setup is attempting to reference.


Locate the VCREDIST_X86.EXE present in the _ARGENT_AT_INSTALL folder and execute it. This will install the relevant runtime libraries.

SETUP.EXE will now execute successfully.
