Application Error : 0xc000007b When starting ShooterGameServer.exe

Hey Guys,

Please bear in mind this is hosted on a "Windows Server 2008R2" dedicated, so as you request details I will upload them to this post.

OS : Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise
CPU : Intel Xeon E3-1245 V2 @ 3.4GHz
RAM : Brandless - 32GB ECC
HDD: 2 x 1TB drives

As it states in the title I am trying to run ShooterGameServer.exe (This if for the ARK survival game dedicated server)

Things that I have done.

Installed the Pre-Requisites below:

Updated .Net to 4.5.1
Installed all available windows updates (And restarted)
Checked out various required .DLL's through the dependency tool, however they are all installed and correct.
SFC /scannow command. 100% file integrity with no issues..

Currently I am : out of ideas!

If anyone can provide a fresh view on this..

VC Redistributables perhaps? 2005/2008/2010/2012/2013 (both 32 and 64 bit)
Would you need DirectX?

Just an update to why this is marked solved.

I had correctly installed all the components required as listed in my first post. However upon installation some of the files within Sys32 had corrupted and ther versions were not correct.

I removed the DirectX dlls from the directory, then re-installed the application from a fresh download media. Since then I have no issues.
