Windows 7: The application was not unable to start correctly (xc0000147). Click .

The application was not unable to start correctly (xc0000147). Click .

Since yesterday, I am getting the above message any time I try to start an application by double clicking on the explorer. The application used to work fine two weeks ago (last time I turned on my PC). I have not intentionally made any changes to the system.

Here's some details:

OS: win 7 64-bit, built 7600
Application: my own (32-bit), starts fine from the command line. older versions of the appl run fine as well from command line, but not from explorer.
I checked for missing dlls/paths in explorer; seem ok
System does not write anything to system logs.

I appreciate any help you can give me to guide troubleshooting

thanks, george
