Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

[Closed] Error 0xc000007b

Upon launching the .exe launcher I receive the following message "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application."

I have looked online for solutions and have tried everything from re-installing directx and .net framework programs to attempting to manually replace .dll files to no avail. I have no clue what the problem is. This prevent me from launching the Unreal engine as well as a few other games. Any suggestions would be welcomed, thank you!
