0xc000007b error when starting planetside 2

Whenever I press play on planetside 2 it gives me the error the application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click ok to close the application. and ive been having this error since I installed windows 8.1. I have looked for solutions every where but none of them seem to work.

I have a custom pc:
amd fx 6300
gpu:r9 270x
motherboard:Gigabyte GA-78LMT-S2P
PSU:Evga 500W

and I am running 64bit windows 8.1

it would be great if somebody could give me a fix to this
thanks in advance

More about 0xc000007b error starting planetside
  1. yeah I tried to install all the runtimes that didn't work
  2. and I tried the dll file thing but I don't know what he means by the second one cause the game im trying to play doesn't use steam
    I think its got something to do with windows 8 because it started as soon as I installed windows 8
    and one of my friends that has windows 8 is getting the same problem
  3. check for the game files they could be corrupt and do you and your friend use the same win 8 cd for the os on both system .
  4. no we had separate ones and I tried reinstalling the game 3 times already
  5. check if yours is not having a scratch under it borrow is cd to see how it goes in your system using your cd keys to validate the os .
  6. the thing is I don't what to reinstall it because I have a lot of very important data
    which is too much too back up
  7. then try a os repair with is cd .
  8. Just download this file, run Planetside 2 and open this file (Let Planetside 2 open!). I made it... http://www.mediafire.com/download/vu7n66t2z969ofb/Start+Planetside+2.bat
