SolidWorks 2015 doesn't run or open application on Windows 10 issue

I am having a large issue with SolidWorks 2015. It's not running the application. At all. More specifically, the computer (Lenovo ideapad running Windows 10) loads up some amount of the software (over a time frame of approximately 20 ms) but, due to some issue unbeknownst to me, stops running the application altogether. There is no error message of any kind. Judging from the files I have, it appears that I have all of the necessary files but something of a corrupted or malfunctioning executable function. If anyone has any ideas about this, please respond.



More Info: I've found an error message by force loading SolidWorks 2015 Composer.

This is the error message from Composer.

The application has failed to launch because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log (no errors) or use the command line sxstrace.exe (yields a blank page) tool for more details.



Please help!
