Side-by-side configuration is incorrect

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.


  • run a project from Studio
  • run a project from command line
  • run UiRobot.exe from %localappdata%\UiPath

UiRobot.exe exists in two places, both in %localappdata%\UiPath and %localappdata%\UiPath\app-**.*.****. Please delete the one from %localappdata%\UiPath.


Same issue

Hi Sukrutha,

Have you checked if you have UiRobot.exe in two places? Please provide more details.

Yes, I have tried with UiRobot present in both the folders with different perm & combinations. But every time same error.

Please delete the one from %localappdata%\UiPath

Thank you so much / finally it is working

Hi @skini76 ,

Can you please explain me ? How we can do this?


The explanation from OVI is self explanatory
UiPath exists in two folders, you have to delete one.

Okay Got it @skini76 Thank you.
