Every time I try to run the game, it runs into an error in the application (0xc000007b). Why does this happens?
I've tried everything on YouTube, but nothing works.

  • What's the "everything in YouTube" you've tried? Why did you add tags for Crusader Kings 2 and 3 and Stellaris? Also: what Windows version are you using (if at all)?

  • And how did you fix the problem with the other games? I wouldn't go around removing, downloading and (re)placing .dlls at random, though, as that might cause more problems.

A few things you can try:

If you want to keep trying replacing or deleting .dll files, you'd better use an app like Dependency Walker, as it lets you know what processes might actually be missing.
