0xc000007b ERROR


Programname.EXE - Application Error

The application was unable to start
correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to
close the application.

There might be multiple reasons as to why you receive an 0xc000007b error when trying to run an application on a Windows computer.

This error comes from mixing up 32bit environment with 64bit one.
For example, if a 32bit application tries to load a 64bit DLL-file, it would cause this error.

Make sure that you have the correct version of the program for your Windows environment.

Often the 64 and 32 bit versions of a program are the same, but if you get the 0xc000007b error, check your system to make sure which bit version your system is. Check this in the Control Panel - ‘System’ option.

Look for "System Type" in the window that opens.

Or find out with this Microsoft guide.

If this happens after installing a file with the DLL-Files Fixer, this means you've got the wrong version. Go back and install one of the dll versions with the other bit structure.
