Q: the application was unable to start correctly 0xc0000142 error message

I started my PC today and as soon as Windows booted up I got this message for all my startup item(the only way I can get any programs to run is through Safe Mode).Seems to come up for every .exe file I try to run. I started to see the signs of it last night when some applications and games just outright refused to launch. I tried doing a couple of things: I ran Malwarebytes and did a scan found some infections and got rid of them, ran the System File Checker and restarted the computer afterwards, tried to do a System Restore. None of these things helped, however after the Malwarebytes scan some programs did start briefly but then something kicked in and I was unable to launch them again. System File Checker told me that some files were fixed and some were not. My Antivirus software doesn't pick anything up either. I've attached the CBS.log from System File Checker to this post. I had this problem a long time ago but I forgot how I fixed it that time. My OS is Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.
Does anyone have any idea how I can fix this?

Preferred Solution: the application was unable to start correctly 0xc0000142 error message

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: the application was unable to start correctly 0xc0000142 error message

well, one thing, run SFC /scannow again, reboot, and if anything was fixed, do it again. Repeat untill it just says no files could be fixed to make sure sfc has done as much as it can

look thru this thread as well SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

hi everyone,

newbie here.

Win 7, nvidea card, various programs cause this.
Autoruns did not fix, regedit editing 1>0 did not fix, various registry cleaners did not fix, can't mscinfig, can't manage my PC as error pops up, startup in compatibility mode did not fix, had but no longer have Autocad/desk but problem was there before hand anyway, SFC scan did not fix and the list goes on...
I do not have any of the suspicious progrmas mentioned by vraious users.

I do see from some searches that AutoCAD is maybe an issue so you definitely have it uninstalled ??

Plus please gte rid of the reg cleaners there is only one that is any good CCleaner and it only needs running if all else fails. You mention too you have done something in the reg but what??

I have a problem that occurs only during shut down only. When I select Shut Down I soon get a pop up that says....the application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142) Click OK to close the application. the label on the window is cmd.exe. Whether I click on the window or not, the shut down proceeds and eventually after say 30 seconds the alert disapears and the laptop shuts down. clicking on the alert simply brings up another alert. All this only occurs during shut down only. Also, I have no problem running cmd.exe during normal operation, or any other program run from the command window. I have read a number of posts but do not see anything exactly like this, that is happening during shut down.

Suggestions would be appreciated. Eric

A:the application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). Occurs during shut down

It might be a program running some extra stuff.

Try a clean boot to disable all programs that run at startup.
Then shut it down to see if the issue re-appears, I thinking it probably won't, from that point you can try to narrow it down to one program by enabling them 1 by 1 on the startup/services tab on the msconfig.

cmd.exe application error - application was unable to start correctly (0x0000142). Click ok to close the application

Anyone know why it happened?

I got this error when I tried to restart to install an update. However, in windows update, it showed I had nothing to update. There was the little yellow shield by the shut down button to indicate it was installing an update when I would shutdown.

I rebooted fine, and CMD works fine. Is it possible windows thought it had to install something, and the installer had already installed the update (I went onto windows update earlier myself to install the windows and silverlight updates) and it bugged because maybe it had to use cmd to execute the update or something?

A:cmd.exe application error - application was unable to start correctly

It seems to be happening again, but only when I shutdown when explorer is open. I tried and tested his multiple times. It has only happened after the new silverlight update and kb 30247777 (sorry if the number is wrong) update.

What is causing this?

Hi all,

PC was running fine and shut down correctly. Came to switch it back on and get the above error message on just about every application I click on. No errors on booting up to the Desktop though. Same problem whether it is a shortcut or the actual .exe file. Seems not to affect the 64 bit applications but all 32 bit applications will not start. Even clicking a .pdf document gives this error. Also seems that some Windows stuff is not working properly. For example I can access the Device Manager by clicking its icon directly in the Control Panel but not by clicking it from a a link in a different Control Panel section (just does not respond to the click).

System is Windows 7 X64. Last Windows update ran 3 days ago so I don't think t has anything to do with that?

I ran Bit Defender Anti Virus (up to date virus definitions, paid for version) and it ran OK as it is a 64 bit app and it did not find anything on the virus front. I don't think is is a virus. Also ran C Cleaner a few times. I have not tried a system restore yet but nothing new has been installed, only a Steam update ran in the previous session.

Any ideas welcome, a reformat is too much to consider right now Please help!

PS: I Google'd this and others reported similar issues about a year back and it was attributed to a bad Windows update back then.

A:Error: the application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000005).

If it was my computer after checking for infection which you have done. I would use the restore point. Then I would run
sfc /scannow as per this tutorial by Brink.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

The problem does have the smell of a infection or a PUP.
You could also run Malwarebytes.

No security program finds 100% of everything 100% of the time.

Then check Windows Updates.
If it gives new updates install them one at a time and verify no problems.

P/S: What big case do you have?

Hello,

I am new to the forums and truly only really joined to ask this question because after being all over the internet and troubleshooting in my own capacity I am still left at a loss and quite perturbed.

FOR SUMMARY SCROLL DOWN TO NEXT BOLD TEXT

I just got a new PC (specs visible on my profile) and have restored most of my Steam games as well as a few other cracked and free-to-play games. After installing them all I started trying to play a few games. I received an error on most games I tried to start except Dota 2 and Far Cry 4 (cracked):

This application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application.

I checked the internet and it suggested I reinstalled Windows 8 Professional Build 9200 64-bit which I had previously installed. This seems to resolved the problem somewhat as the majority of the games that hadn't worked previously began to work.

However, some games still refuse to work and produce the same error. After changing ownership of the \SysWOW64 and \System32 folders in C>Windows since I had trouble copying the 5 .dlls in several other forums namely:

mfc100.dll
mfc100u.dll
msvcp100.dll
msvcr100.dll
msvcr100_clr0400.dll

Mostly it was the msvcr100_clr0400.dll that refused to copy across even after booting into safe mode. This copying was solved by a permission change and ownership change. I then deleted the msvcp100.dll file and the 0xc000007b error then gave way to the error:

The program can't start because MS... Read more

A:Application unable to start correctly: Error 0xc000007b & MSVCP100.dll following

In addition the deletion of the file was suggested and it said that the game would create a MSVCP100.dll by itself which it did not.

Error 0X0000005 is "access denied" which implies somehow the ownership got messed up. Probably the Program Files folder. With all the installs things may be confused. Try right clicking on Program Files folder and clicking Take Ownership. If the selection is not there see this:

Naturally before doing anything make a restore point and/or back up Registry (google ERUNT) and/or do an image backup of your system if you have an external drive to store the image.

Now I know there have been MANY threads in relation to this ridiculous error but I have gone through all of them and tried all things. At least I think I have.

I have run Windows Repair Environment.
I have repaired/reinstalled C++, framework, DirectX.
I have downloaded the correct DLL files and gone into safe mode and place them in the Wendows/System32 files manually.
Even done the ChKDsk thing and it came up clean.

I have a fresh install of Windows as I recently had my HDD fail. I'm now running on a Samsung EVO 840 512GB SSD. However I had this issue before the migration took place.

I have no idea where to go from here. I am LOST! I would greatly appreciate your help with this one.

Cheers

I think we need a lot more data to be able to have any hope of proper diagnosis - and I also think you may have made mistakes with your handling of the dll problems you mention.


SFC -System File Checker - Instructions
Click on Start > All Programs > Accessories
Right-click on the Command Prompt entry
Select Run as Administrator and accept the UAC prompt - the Elevated Command Prompt window should pop up.
At the Command prompt, type
SFC /SCANNOW
and hit the Enter key
Wait for the scan to finish - make a note of any error messages - and then reboot.

Upload the whole CBS folder (C:\Windows\logs\CBS) (compressed, please!) to your OneDrive or DropBox Public folder, and post a link.

Hi Sam Welcome to Seven Forums .. Have you recently just Re-installed Windows .. Or did an Upgrade or recently downloaded Windows updates . You could try a Restore point before this happened

I just installed Windows 8.1 on a second hard-drive so that I can dual-boot between Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.

I reinstalled all of my programs, games, etc and everything is absolutely amazing. Windows 8.1 is actually really fast!

Anyways... Everything is working great except 1 thing! I have a standalone .exe (requires no installation, so there's no direct connection to an OS via registry or anything) that will NOT open on Windows 8.1

If I attempt to open it on my Windows 8.1, I get the error "The Application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b)"

but on my Windows 7, it works just fine..

I've done a LOT of research on this and I've read just about every article linked to this issue online and nothing has worked.

Here's what I've done..

1. Re-installed Visual C++. I did for every year, i.e. 2005, 2008, 2010, etc.

2. Replace the 5 DLL's for Visual C++ while in Safe-Mode and then restart.. I was only able to replace 4 of them, the last one was giving me permission troubles for some reason. It was called "msvcr100_clr0400.dll"

3. Run a debugger (WinDbg) and use Application Verifier to try and pinpoint the problem. Tried this, but the program doesn't boot far enough to gather any information, and I can't really understand what WinDbg throws at me.

4. Use Dependency Walker to see if it points you to a DLL. When I use Dependency Walker, it has very minimal results.

To be exact:

00:00:00.000: Started "d:\Application.EXE" (process 0x1... Read more

Hello,

I have this infamous error. I already googled a lot, but solutions worked. I'm trying to run opencpn.exe program, and get this error. This program worked before. Tried reinstalling, but nothing changed (even with different version of the program).
Therefore, error must be somewhere else.

I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.

What I tried:

chkdsk C: /r (no errors found)
sfc /scannow (found some errors, but unable to fix)
reinstalling Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 C++ Redistributable x86 (Control Panel shows that I also have 2005 and 2008 versions, x64).
reinstalling .net framework 3.5 and 4.0
fixing registry with CCleaner

I have turned off Windows Restore, but anyways, I wouldn't know when to restore to, since last I checked that program was more than few months ago.

Problem still persists. I don't want to reinstall Windows just for this one thing.

Could someone please help me out?

Read Post # 5 and 6 from here:

Also please do NOT use any registry cleaners (not even CCleaner's) as it can cause harm to your computer. Also I reocmmend turning Windows Restore back on.

I've looked up this error over and over and there's a 1000 "fixes" and none of them have worked for me.

Situation: Four years ago I purchased Windows 7 Home Premium Pack, which was a disk set with four licenses. I installed three of them on my wife's laptop, my laptop, and my desktop, all 32bit. I saved the 4th license for later.

Over the last year, many of my main software packages I've been using have dropped 32 bit in favor of 64. They are all related to Video editing. So I purchased a new 2TB hard drive and installed it in my desktop as a second boot drive. F12 on power up gives me the option to boot from my old 32bit drive or the new drive. I installed my final license on the new drive with a 64 bit version of Win7 Ultimate.

I then installed Adobe's Creative Suite CC, and it's programs seemed to work perfectly (Adobe Premiere, After Effects, Photo Shop, Etc.) But then I installed BlackMagic Design Resolve Lite and the problems began. When I double click on the icon, I get the error in the thread title: The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b)

At first I thought it was just a problem with this particular piece of software, but I received my new Autodesk 3d Studio Max yesterday, and when I try to start it, I get the same error. So I decided to check some other programs, and I found that Adobe Lightroom gives this error.

Now I don't use Resolve very much, so it wasn't a big deal, but I do use 3ds Max a lot, and Lightroom even more, so... Read more

A:HELP! The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b)

First off, that 7b error i thought as I remember from earlier research almost always had to do with a hardware and/or driver issue.
Secondly, I don't know how you got a license key from Windows Home Prem 32bit to install Windows 7 ultimate 64bit system . That is never supposed to work.
Thirdly, maybe it was a wording bluder but you made reference to a 32bit drive and another drive you eluded to being 64bit. HDD's are not 32bit or 64bit, Maybe you were just referring to the OS software installed on them. I just tend to be more precise in my wording as word can easily mislead.

I've been googling and browsing forums for the last several hours and have not found my exact error.

The only time I'm getting the error svchost.exe unable to start error 0xc0000142 error is when I'm trying to shutdown and reboot. Windows 7 will force a restart, and after a while will eventually close the error window (x'ing out of it does not work, nor does clicking ok), and reboot, and all seems fine otherwise, but it's beginning to really bug me. I've tried just about all the fixes suggested, and have cleaned and recleaned my registry and run other diagnostics, and everything looks okay.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Hello, I am trying to repair my son's HP G60-235DX laptop which recently began getting error messages when attempting to open .exe files. I have researched other sites and this forum and tried the following:
Edit registry per link: Can't open .EXE files in Windows 7 or Windows Vista
Run chkdsk /f /r
Check memory for errors using system utilities
Nothing is working. When I try to open any .exe file, I get this error message.
I cannot open IE or Firefox, so cannot access internet to download any fix utilities.
I have created a bootable CD and tried to restore to a previous point in time, but get messages that restore failed to extract D:\Windows\inf\asp.net\000A\aspnet_perf2.ini from the restore point and that restore point was damaged or deleted during restore procedure. Now restore points don't appear as available any longer. I have checked the logs and find the 0xc000005 message appearing with faulting app firefox.exe and faulting module xul.dll as well as faulting app qp.exe and faulting module _cdplayer.dll, so it appears there may be an issue with dll's. The antivirus installed on laptop is AVG 2013, but I can't even open that to scan for virus or malware. I can boot to CD, but it doesn't appear that I can access anything on C: drive.

I'm trying to run an application called MySQL Workbench which has been working perfectly fine up until last week which now displays the error message below.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling to no avail and talking to the Microsoft support helpline I'm passed from department to department with no resolution.

I need this to do my uni coursework, I'm at my wit's end

A:Windows 10 0xc00000e5 application unable to start correctly

I believe 0xc000005e means that the initialization of in this case most likely a prerequisite failed what would mean that one or more programs that are required are either corrupted or not proper installed.
I do also have MySQL Workbench, but I'm not 100% sure what programs are required. I reinstalled it a short time ago, but I installed Visual Studio before it what could be the reason why no prerequisite programs were extra installed (they were installed when Visual Studio was installed).

I suggest to remove the software from Microsoft, like
Microsoft .NET Framework,Microsoft SQL Server,Microsoft Visual C++
and MySQL Workbench, download a new installation and try to install again.

I've been going crazy the past week about this error. I've searched every post out there for a solution to this problem but every step I take to solve it seems to fail at one point also most of the other posts seem to have slightly different problems.

It all started about a week ago when I was trying to run Pro Evolution Soccer 2013 when it gave me that error. I tried uninstalling but it would give me an error as well. I noticed that the main error I'm complaining about only appears with most of the programs/games I use but not all of them.

For example the following programs/games don't work anymore and show me that error( Windows media player classic/VLC/Assassins Creed/Max Payne/ PES 2012/2013 and so much more)

Although some other programs/games did work such as (Google chrome/Windows media player/ccleaner).

I also noticed that when I try to download anything from google chrome it would be blocked and fail.

What I tried to do:
============

1- I ran a full system scan via Microsoft security essentials and I was free of any viruses/malware/trojans.

2- Downloaded ccleaner and fixed all registry errors.

3- I ran windows diagnostics to check for faulty Ram or HD and both were good.

4- Tried installing malwarebytes which was successful but every time I would run the program it wouldn't open giving me a (malwarebytes error 339 ieframe.dll)

5- Combofix also wasn't able to run by the (0xc0000005) error.

It sounds like you are getting Access Denied. Usually indicates a UAC error or that the program needs to be run As Administrator. You don't indicate the state of your UAC. Also please see below:

Whenever I start the computer, I get to the logon screen, click my name, plug in my password, and get the message in the thread title. At first I started getting a message that the task manager was unable to start correctly, then after doing some diagnostic tests that went away and this is what I have now.

I ran the "sfc /scannow" program from the command prompt several times, but each time got the message "windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations".

And it won't let me use my wireless card. I can only do things in safe mode. When I try to system restore from safe mode. It fails when it starts up in normal windows mode. I dont know what happened to cause this problem. I didn't change any settings or download any new programs.

Any quick help would be greatly appreciated. I was trying to fix some BSOD's and windows update issues on a friend's pc. I thought i was successful until i kept getting "Setup has detected that .NET Framework 4 needs to be repaired. Do not restart your computer until the repair is complete."

After some research, I thought I could resolve the issue with the .net framework cleanup tool. After attempting that, now I get the "Application was unable to start properly (0xc0150004)" error message. The only program I've been able to start has been IE8. This also means I wasn't able to run the BSOD tool you guys provide for posting.

I've tried startup repair more than a couple times. Also tried system restore from the windows recovery environment and it said it was unable to complete. 50% of the time, when trying to get into the recovery environment or just the regular system, I get an "irql_less_or_not_eual" blue screen.

When i originally started working on the pc i cleaned a bunch of viruses off (or so i thought). I have a sneaking suspicion that this issue was caused by a virus with a sneaky backdoor and is masquerading as some .net files.

the system was built by my friend and has: Asus p5ql pro MOBO, Intel core 2 duo, currently 4gigs mem (2x2gb corsair), NVIDIA GeForce 8400 GS and a WD HD.

I hope I've given some good starting information.
