I have installed Adobe CS6 on Windows 8 and get the error "0xc000007b" every time I open open Adobe After Effects. All other Adobe software, including Photoshop and Premiere Pro, work perfectly. I have looked online extensively but have not found any solutions.

What can I try/do to resolve this error?

OS: Windows 8 (64 bit) - CPU: Intel Core i3-3110M 2,40GHz - RAM: 6GB DD3 - FX: AMD Radeon HD 7670M

When I open Adobe After Effects CS6 with Dependency Walker, this message appears : "Error: At least one module has an unresolved import due to a missing export function in an implicitly dependent module. Error: Modules with different CPU types were found. Warning: At least one module has an unresolved import due to a missing export function in a delay-load dependent module."

What can I do to resolve this error?

why do you no comment my reply? The tool should tell you which dll is it. Look for the red icon in the module list. – magicandre1981 May 18 '13 at 17:17
@magicandre1981 looks like he edited his question to include t what happend when he ran dependency walker – barlop Nov 30 '13 at 20:52
@barlop he did not post which DLL is highlighted. And it is 6 Months ago, so I doubt he'll ever reply here again. – magicandre1981 Dec 1 '13 at 6:42

This error means, that the program tries to load a DLL with the wrong CPU architecture (32/64Bit).

C:\Users\André>err 0xc000007b
# for hex 0xc000007b / decimal -1073741701
  STATUS_INVALID_IMAGE_FORMAT                                    ntstatus.h
# {Bad Image}
# %hs is either not designed to run on Windows or it contains

Use Depends.exe to analyze the Adobe After Effects start and look which DLL is causing it.

Use the Profiling feature (F7)

After the error occured you should see the failing DLL in red:

err.exe mentioned here… Did you get it from the 2003 resource kit? or something more recent - what? – barlop Nov 30 '13 at 20:52
I got the err.exe from the Windows 7 SDK. – magicandre1981 Dec 1 '13 at 6:41
