    Application wont start (0xc0000142)

    I am making applications with Livecode in Windows 8 and when saving them as exe's they were launching then due to some bad code I had to end the explorer process and reboot my PC and now when I try to run these programs I get the error
    The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). Click OK to close the application.
    I tried using sfc /scannow and it found errors but could not repair them.
    I have uploaded the log file and I was hoping to get some help. With system restore as a last resort.
    Thanks, all help appreciated.

    Try pressing Winkey-x then 'a' to get an Administrative Command Prompt. Now try sfc /SCANNOW in there.
