Windows 7 -- and problem using VDSP API

I have a Visual Studio program on one Windows 7 32-bit professional machine that accesses the VDSP API -- work a treat

     The executable runs and interacts with VDSP


I install the same program on a second machine -- it will not run and provides the error message


" The application has failed to start becasue its side-by-side  configuration is incorrect. Pls see the application event log or use the  command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail"
Both machines are running windows 7 32-bit professional
I am going to guess the following is the problem -- but it is a guess
     First machine has Visdual Studio installed, the second does not
     The Visudal studio program that accesses VDSP needs some Visual Studio dll's because the exectuable is not stand-alone
          The first machine has these -- the second does not
     We are going to install Visual Studio 2010 Express (free) on the second machine in 'the hope' that the dlls become available.
Are we approaching this the correct way -- or is something missing from the way we installed VDSP on the windows 7 meachines
