Question: 

After installing Komodo, it does not run at all. Running ko.exe directly produces an error which reads:

This application has failed to start because the application configuration is incorrect. Reinstalling application may fix this problem.

Reinstalling does not fix the problem. What's wrong?

Answer: 

It's most likely the result of Windows not having a working copy of the right version of the Visual C++ library runtime:

Try downloading and installing the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)
