I did refer to this: "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0150004). Click OK to close the application.". I looked up my runtime ribraries and found out I had two 2005, two 2008, and two 2010 runtime libraries. I did what techie007 said to do and uninstalled all my runtime libraries and used his links to reinstall them. I only ended up with 4 libraries, however, because only the 2005 library link had the two versions I had, the 2008 and 2010 links only had one version. The programs (QuickTimePlayer.exe and APSDaemon.exe) still didn't work and displayed the same error.

Questions about runtime libraries: Do I need replaced versions of the runtime libraries I have or do I just need the latest library?-Other sources seem to contradict the replacing and say to get the latest library.

This is also on a windows 7 64-bit. What do I do to get these programs running?


ok, the VC++ Runtime 8.0.50727.6195 is missing in the 32Bit Version. Download this C++ Runtime (vcredist_x86.EXE) and the issue should be fixed:

Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package MFC Security Update

  • Problem installing the runtime library. I click run on the installer and go through and when it gets to the loading installing part it just exits out. I have tried it multiple times and as administrator. Also tried restarting my comp and re-downloading the installer. Got anything on this? – Professor Mikey Jan 20 '14 at 6:40
  • Run ProcMon in background and look for errors: channel9.msdn.com/Shows/Defrag-Tools/… – magicandre1981 Jan 20 '14 at 18:28
  • I believe the problem is : BUFFER TOO SMALL – Professor Mikey Jan 20 '14 at 21:40
  • no. Save the ProcMon log, zip and upload it. – magicandre1981 Jan 21 '14 at 5:04
  • Well...microsoft.exe didn't appear in the process names when I did it but here you go anyway dropbox.com/s/ilvs2h0bxhre4ym/Logfile.zip – Professor Mikey Jan 25 '14 at 20:03
