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

Hi Corrupted,

If you were able to execute devenv skip to the next post (when there is one)

If not, try searching for it - a command line might be easier

open an elevated command line (right click - run as administrator)
in the command prompt window type:
dir /s /a devenv*.*
If it is found, the Change Directories (CD) to the location and execute the commands A Guy provided before.
cd \location-devenv-was-found
and execute the commands A Guy previously provided

It's possible that devenv is hidden or is a system file and it won't be available when you try to run it.
see what the attrinbutes are on the file if this is the case
attrib devenv*.*

It sounds as though you found many of the things that turned up in my quick search, so I'll leave it at that. good luck.

Did you read the page at the bottom of Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x64)?
Additional information: Visual Studio 2010 Readme
I'm hardly a guru and have no experience with VS, but I've mucked around in MS forever.

I might have missed it, but did you check Aaron's blog? It is dated, but supports all .NET releases up to 4.5 (current)
Did you run the NET verifier?

Also on Aaron's blog, he mentions how to remove orphaned ms c runtimes. Or, you could go with your orignal thought and reinstall win7. I'm not certain you won't have the same issue afterwards though. The common thread found is C runtime and .NET.

If you do reinstall Windows, I suggest installing VS2012 only - do not install VS2010.
