The SideBySide in this case is not the one actually having the problem but the application mentioned in the event (SideBySide is just the "messenger", so don't shoot it!). Any approach in troubleshooting this should focus on the application mentioned in the event. There are quite a few applications that are associated with this type of problem and a fix for one of them does not necessarily apply to all the others.

Application: C:\Program Files\Tivoli\TSM\baclient\jvm60\jre\bin\unpack.dll,   attribute "version" in element "assemblyIdentity" is invalid. - According to IBM, these error messages are issued by the IBM Java Runtime Engine 1.6 which is shipped with the version 6.2 backup-archive client. The messages can be ignored since they do not affect the operation of the backup-archive client. Client versions below 6.2 ship with an earlier Java Runtime Engine which does not exhibit this problem.

Application: c:\program files (x86)\spybot - search & destroy\DelZip179.dll, attribute "language" in element "assemblyIdentity" is invalid. From a support forum, SpyBot replied "Seems like your delzip.dll is damaged".
