However, when I install the latest audacity, 2.0.2, I get error message 14001 "side by side configuration is incorrect". I have followed the advice on the forum from earlier version problems with this and installed the 2008 C++ redistributable file recommended. This still has not solved the problem.
Make sure you install the correct redistributable. You need the 32-bit redistributable if you are on 32-bit Vista and the 64-bit redistributable if you are on 64-bit Vista.

That won't help.

Doesn't make any difference.
There are probably hacks you can make but please make sure you installed the correct redistributable first.
