Why am I still receiving error even after installing Microsoft Visual C++ 2008_x86?

[ Edited ]

Few hours ago, I tried to download and install Smart SwitchAt first I got the following error:  

"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" 

They told me to download and install Microsoft Visual C++ 2008_x86 

After installing Microsoft Visual C++ 2008_x86 I tried to install Smart Switch for the second time and

now I get the following error: 

"The ordinal 12404 could not be located in the dynamic link library"

That because you've downloaded the wrong version for your computer. Open the uninstall or change a program in control panel. You probably downloaded version 9.0.21022. 

Use the following link and download this version:
