After downloading and installing Creative Cloud, Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign CC, etc. will not open.
We get an error message 0xc000007b.
After consulting the forums, we updated our NVidea Video Card driver from the official site.
We also uninstalled everything, used the Adobe Cleaning utility and reinstalled.
None of this worked. We also updated our DLL files to no avail.
I understand that this is not an uncommon problem, nor a simple one to fix.
If anyone can offer any help in this it would be deely appreciated as I use these programs for my work everyday, and need them badly!
I had the same problem with Illustrator CC 2014.
After reading the thread:
I decided to uninstall all the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable entries beginning with the newest (x64),
however, when I tried to uninstall Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable (x64) 12.0... the following window appeared
I selected Repair instead of uninstall and the process was succesful, then I tried to start Illustrator and the error message 0xc000007b apperared again, then I selected and repaired succesfully Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Redistributable (x64) 11.0... and after this repair illustrator started without problems.
