    0x7b application opening error with certain games


    When I try and play Batman Arkham Origins or Bioshock Infinite, it gives me an application error 0x000007b. I've reinstalled both, reinstalled the visual c++ components. I've done a sfc /scannow and I have the sfcdetails.txt here.
    I really wish to play these games, as I was able to play them both for a bit then they stopped working. The problem could be with more than just those two things, I just haven't played everything since it's started.

    Hi, Welcome to 8 forums.

    I will suggest to run SFC /SCANNOW atleast 3 more times. So that it can find the exact issue. Once it finds the issues (mostly it will give you an error that it was not able to fix some .dll file). Once you run that you can simply copy that file from your Win 8 disc to system folder. problem solved.

    Sorry if this is a silly question, as I don't usually mess around with things like this, does this check every disk? The games that this is happening to are on different HD's.

    Okay, I've done that multiple times, no luck.
