Carbide Motion Startup Error

(Greg Smith) #1

Before Christmas, I purchased a NuVision tablet that runs Windows 10 64-bit, hoping to use it to drive my Shapeoko 3XL. I was able to download and install Carbide Motion V3 build 366, but when I try to start the program, I get this Application Error:

“The application was unable to start correctly (0x0000007b). Click OK to close the application.”

I was hoping there might be a Windows guru out there who might be able to help me get past this error.

I would uninstall it and try a new download and install it again.If that dosent fix it, try google there was tons for (windows 10 error The application was unable to start correctly (0x0000007b)" and look for the tom’s hardware guide,they are really good.Hope this helps!

I have already uninstalled and re-downloaded and re-installed several times. I’ll look for the “Tom’s hardware guide” as you suggest.

Thank you for pointing me in that direction. A video from “Tom’s Hardware” helped me find the fix! I had already downloaded and installed the 2013 Visual C++ distribution for Windows 64 bit, but the video said to get the one for 32 bit as well. I installed them both and the program now starts up! I’ll just have to see if I can get it connected now and verify it works!

Thanks again!
