    Error playing any games on windows installation-0xc000007b


    Hi I recently updated to windows 8.1 x64 from windows 7 x86 but now whenever I try to play any game it shows an error-0xc000007b
    All my games ran fine on windows 7 but since yesterday after I upgraded I cannot play any games.
    Any help will be much appreciated

    What games? Have you installed DX9 already? Download DirectX Redistributable June 2010 9.29.1974

    Download and install Microsoft Visual C++ 2005/2008/2010/2012 both x64/x86 to have all the runtime files.

    Microsoft Visual C - Search Microsoft.com - Basically it should look like mine.
