Windows 7: The application was unable to start..

The application was unable to start..

I am having trouble starting a program that I have just downloaded ( Workspace -Interwrite) It is for presenting on a smart board. I am getting the following error:

The application was unable to start correctly (0xc-0000142) Click oK to terminate the application.

I deleted the old version of the program before I downloaded the new one. I loaded this program on another Windows 7 Pc and it works fine so I know the issue is with this computer. I have tried running in different compatibility modes and as an admistrator. I welcome any suggestions..

thanks

Hi grodskib

Your Download may be corrupted, I would download again and try installation, also did you download from the software makers home site ...

Also close any Windows programs and none essential applications running, this may include your Anti Virus for a short time in some cases.

First uninstall the current version with REVO ( Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems ) Use the "advanced" option. Make sure you get rid of all the registry entries and files, Then reinstall.

According to the error, the problem is with the loading of a specific .dll file:
Code:
# for hex 0xc0000142 / decimal -1073741502 :
  STATUS_DLL_INIT_FAILED                                        ntstatus.h
# {DLL Initialization Failed}
# Initialization of the dynamic link library %hs failed. The
# process is terminating abnormally.
# 1 matches found for "c0000142"
Unfortunately, the program doesn't handle the problem and thus knowing which one isn't necessarily obvious. If you ran process monitor while launching the program, however, and then saving out the .pml file for review, you could probably figure out which file it was looking for and failed to find (or failed to load), to give yourself a starting point for fixing this.

OK, so zip or rar up the .pml file you saved and post it here or on a file hosting site, and we'll take a look.
