Thread: Error Message (0xc000007b)

    Error Message (0xc000007b)

    Hello. When I try to install Civ V, whether or not I choose dx9 or 10/11, it always comes up with the error message saying: "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application."

    Before I had this problem, I had to deal with the missing d3dx9_42.dll file, which was an easy fix. Seems to be one problem after another >.>

    Any help, please? Thanks, if any.

    First hit on google on that error msg:

    Check for virusses

    If that does not turn up anything, try verifying your game files from within Steam.

    Try starting the game from within steam - works for me.

    Steam - Library - Civ V - "Play"

    Edit: or just right click the steam icon in your tak bar and choose the game.

    Steam is a virus not a solution.
