So I just recently installed creative cloud on my pc running windows 7 professional and I'm having issues with all the apps. This is not just After Effects but it's the program I was initially trying to access. After installing the app I attempted to open it only to be greeted by this.
I've tried what I could glean from the forums but as best I can tell this is the most recent version of After Effects (126.96.36.199) and I've never had a previous version of creative cloud on my pc. As I said I've tried using other apps and run into the same problem. I have an Intel Core i7-4790K CPU @ 4GHz and 16 GB of ram if that helps so I'm not convinced hardware is my issue.
Uninstall the MSVC Runtimes from your Add or Remove Programs system control panel and reinstall them, either directly from Microsoft or the install repositories created within the Adobe folders.
