Windows 7: 0xc000007b error for all VS2012 applications even with the redists

0xc000007b error for all VS2012 applications even with the redists

Running x64 Windows 7

Got a free copy of VS2012 ultimate from my university's Microsoft program a few days ago and I got that error when running it, along with any program built with VS2012. After installing the redists from the Microsoft Download Center I tried again and the same error appears.

I've tried installing the x86 and x64 by themselves, and both at the same time but to no avail. I still have the 2010 redist installed if that makes a difference, however I could find no way to remove them as they don't appear anywhere.

Have also chkdsk'd and repaired my installation from cd to no avail.

See the 3rd post in this thread , note the correct spacing after devenv :

.NET Framework Setup Verification Tool User's Guide - Aaron Stebner's WebLog - Site Home - MSDN Blogs

Then try these common steps to see if it works for you:
Open Visual Studio Command Prompt (2010) under Start menu -> All Programs -> Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 -> Visual Studio Tools (run it with Administrator privilege: right-click the program -> Run as administrator);
Try some devenv switches in command prompt:
Run devenv /Resetsettings to eliminate the cause of corrupted settings.
Run devenv /ResetSkipPkgs in Command Prompt.
Run devenv /Safemode to see if you can apply it correctly. This can eliminate the possibility that third party Add-ins or packages are causing problems.
Reboot the machine in SafeMode. This can isolate some third party application/driver's interference.
Switch and try a new user account. This can rule out the possibility of corrupted user profile.

If you still failed, please try devenv.exe /log <log path> in Command Prompt. I’d like to check the logs of Visual Studio to see the error. (The log will be generated on the path your typed and called Activity.xml by default).

To make it clearer After the command prompt is open, Type

devenv /Resetsettings

Enter

And/or

devenv /ResetSkipPkgs

Enter

And/or

devenv /Safemode

Enter

'devenv' is not recognized as an internal or external command. Well this is embarassing.

Yikes! The command you did is correct:

Devenv Command Line Switches

I see reference to a devenv.exe it may be devnev.exe /Resetsettings

Perhaps confirm the presence of devenv.exe at

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 11.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.ex

I hope I am not sending you on a wild goose chase, it was just something I found googling. I can look more tomorrow when I have time to help here.

Right, well after several reinstalls of Visual Studio 2010 it has decided to work again. Alas after entering the commands, Visual Studio 2012 (and all programs built with it) are still refusing to work.

Attempting to open the devenv DOS application in the visual studio 11.0\common7 etc folder gives me the application error originally stated >.<
