Please help me. I'm having error on running Dead Rising on my laptop the error said "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application." Please help me fix this. Thank you.
 
there are some shared files stored on you machine in C:\Windows\System32
sometimes when you uninstall a game it will also remove the shared files. That is fine except that the shared files might be used by anoter game on your system.
That leaves you to reinstall the game or restore the files if you know what they are.
for example you can get this if Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package was removed and a game was using the shared files.
here is a fix for one version of that error (again, not specific to your error, you would have to look up the game to find the correct files)

here is a link to microsoft visual c runtime download, it may help depending on the files that are missing

I've already installed the dll files on the bitdefender site, and the microsoft runtime c++ but when I'm gonna install it there is a pop up that says I have already a newer version of the visual c++, but the game has still the 0xc000007b error. -___-
 
any chance you are running 32 bit windows? and the binary is 64 bit version?
0xc000007b= "STATUS_INVALID_IMAGE_FORMAT"
wrong binaries(32 bit vs 64 bit) or corrupt file I would think.


you might look in this directory for the files:
c:\Windows\SysWOW64\msvcp100.dll
c:\Windows\SysWOW64\msvcp100d.dll
c:\Windows\SysWOW64\msvcr100.dll
c:\Windows\SysWOW64\msvcr100_clr0400.dll
c:\Windows\SysWOW64\msvcr100d.dll

chkdsk can repair some types of corruption

sfc.exe /scannow can fix other types of system file corruptions

I'm running on a 64-bit windows 8 system. All the dll files are on the syswow64 location but still can't run the game.
