Why does Vocaloid fail to start and when I do what the eventlog says it still fails?

Q: hey, I recently Got Vocaloid V3.0.5.0 and installed it no problems, as well as Gakupo’s software.
but when i run it. it comes up with “this 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”

I looked on the internet and found “Some PC’s can be affected by this issue (“nice” bug from Yamaha), go to Start->Control Panel and uninstall all Visual C++ 2008 Redists, then uninstall and install V3-editor again, be sure that you have administrative privileges for this. This issue more often happens with Windows 7.
This installer already have Visual C++ 2008 redist inside (installed in quite mode along with the Editor) ” and i did what it said but i still got the same error.
I am Using Windows 8 Ultimate not windows 7 but still have a problem
Please help!! my Biggest dream is to make my own Vocaloid character but i cant do that if i cant even use the software! HELP!! 🙁
