Microsoft bounced me back and forth for 3 hours...and couldnt help me at all. I've spent 2 months trying to figure this out. When I launch certain games like Dark Souls 3, Nioh, or Fallout 4, I get an error instead: " The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application."
No amount of Driver updates, c++, .net frameworks or anything helped. I EVEN FACTORY RESET MY COMPUTER. And it's still happening. The weirdest part? These games used to run on my computer just fine. So I'm baffled at every corned.
I ran a Dependecy Check on two of the games and I got the exact same errors and missing items:

The system couldnt find a massive amount of DLL files. All having the same "API-MS-WIN-CORE' or "EXT-MS-WIN" beginnings in the titles.
Please. This is a nightmare. Is there anyone out there with a solid answer?
