Can't successfully load Scivener for Windows Beta

I have tried several times to download and intall the beta version of Scrivener for Windows. In each attempt the files download, but when the program launches, I get the error message:

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

But it does not fix the problem. Does anyone have any advice?

Many thanks.

What OS version are you running? On XP, you’ll need to make sure you have an additional library installed. See this post. If it’s not XP, are you installing as administrator or standard, and where are you installing to? Or are you unable to run the installer?
