When launching "Traktor.exe" (version 2.8.0 or higher) in 32-bit mode from the following location: C: > Program Files > Native Instruments > Traktor 2 > x86 > "Traktor.exe", you will encounter the following error message: 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 details.
In order to launch the 32-bit version of TRAKTOR correctly, the "Traktor.exe" file must be first moved from the x86 folder to the Traktor 2 application folder, as explained below:
- Rename the "Traktor.exe" found in the Traktor 2 folder to "Traktor 64.exe". This will be your backup 64-bit application.
- Go to the x86 folder and move the 32-bit "Traktor.exe" file to the Traktor 2 folder. Now your Traktor 2 folder should contain both files "Traktor 64.exe" (64-bit) and "Traktor.exe" (32-bit).
You can now launch "Traktor.exe" (32-bit) without getting any errors. You may also create a Desktop shortcut for quick access.
