Here is How To Fix 0xc000007b Error?
Typically, this occurs when there is a mix of 32-bit and 64-bit versions of Windows and applications.
Below is a list of different methods that will help you to fix the 0xc00000007b error. You may only need one technique, but in some cases you may need a combination of two.
Restart your computer
Our first tip is simply to restart Windows. If the problem persists, then implement the following solutions.
Update the .NET Framework
In most cases, the Microsoft .NET Framework Repair Tool causes the problem. This program is essential for the operation of some applications developed in .NET.
We recommend that you download the update from the Microsoft site , reboot your PC, and try using your current program or game again.
Enable administrator rights
Try to run your program with administrator rights. To do this, right-click on the application concerned, in the drop-down menu select Properties. Then, in the Compatibility tab , check the Run this program as administrator box and confirm with OK .
Reinstall the app or game
You can also try to reinstall the game or program you are trying to use.
In many cases, Windows will automatically update . To check if this is the case, enter Windows Update in the Windows search bar (bottom left) , it will be indicated that your device is up to date.
Use the Checkdisk utility
The checkdisk tool (chkdsk) is used to check the completeness of your hard disk, and to fix logical errors of the system. To access it, you will need to open the command prompt (type cmd in the Windows search bar) and enter chkdsk c: / f / r .
If this is the main Windows disk, then you will be asked to schedule a reboot. Checkdisk will analyze your main drive and other drives.
Our last recommendation is to reinstall DirectX, it is a set of Windows drivers that allows applications and especially games to work directly with your audio and video equipment.
This reinstallation will depend on your Windows version and DirectX, to proceed, please refer to the Microsoft instructions .
