side-by-side configuration is incorrect when starting up Inventor 2012

after installing Autodesk Inventor 2012 when starting the program, I immediately get the message:


C:\Program Files\Autodesk\Inventor 2012\Bin\Inventor.exe

The application has failed to start because the side by side configuration is incorrect.
Refer to the Application event log or use the command-line tool
sxtrace.exe for more information.


I tried to reinstall Inventor 2012 or reinstalling the components in Microsoft Visual C++ after removing them but after that I still got the same message about the application has failed to start because the side by side configuration is incorrect.


How can I best solve this problem for using Autodesk Inventor 2012?

I really appreciate any help you can provide,
