Hi,
I just installed Visual Studio and when I launch it, the following error pops up: "The Application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application". I tried searching online but no usable results. Please help!

Hi,
There is not enough information about the problem. For troubleshooting, I recommend you can use Process Monitor to detect whether there's any process failed.
You can download Process Monitor and see how to use it for troubleshooting in below links:

There are a lot of log entries in Process Monitor, you may filter Visual Studio process only(proces = devenv.exe). And you can upload the logs to OneDrive so that we can investigate them.
Also, you can refer to Gfazil's post in

Please try the method he mentioned to see whether the problem can occur:
" Replacing the dlls mentioned below from a machine that is working solves the problem:
c:\Windows\SysWOW64\msvcp100.dll
c:\Windows\SysWOW64\msvcp100d.dll
c:\Windows\SysWOW64\msvcr100.dll
c:\Windows\SysWOW64\msvcr100_clr0400.dll
c:\Windows\SysWOW64\msvcr100d.dll "
Best Wishes!
