How To Fix 0xc000007b Error



When we install a new application, game, or any other program on our computer and try to open it then it shows an error message 
” The application was unable to start correctly  (0xc000007b) Click ok to close the program.”
Sometimes we already use the application or game but when we reopen this application this error (0xc000007b) occurred.
In this post, we’ll learn how to get rid of this problem, why and when this problem occurred, and how to solve this problem.

Why did 0xc000007b Error occur?

There are many reasons due to which this (0xc000007b) error occurred and here I tell about the major and most popular reasons of this error.

Reason 1

Sometimes we download any file from the internet and didn’t use any online protection/security and with the file, we need another extra file of viruses also download hiddenly in our computer and these viruses or malicious file distort our computer’s security and damage our system files and also corrupt some other files which are necessary to load programs. So due to this activity, 0xc000007b error occurred when we open any software or game. 


When we try to register the application without a legal way i.e. Without a registration key. We paste some extra files to register this software this way these extra files damage our computer’s current program loading files due to this reason 0xc000007b error occurred. 

Reason 3

The main and common reason for this is that some vruntime, dll, c++, java and this type of files are missing from our computer. These files are necessary to load some of the program. When these files do not support our system then 0xc000007b error occurs. 

Reason 4
