Games in windows 10

So I just got a whole ton of games (GTA V, NFS Payback, AC Origins etc.) from one of my good friends and I installed and ran them on my laptop but none of them worked. They all showed a common error message, with the code 0xc000007b

I do believe it has something to with Direct X or visual c++ but I tried reinstalling them several times, nothing worked. I once messed with the d3d compiler files in windows folder, which i believe caused this, how can i fix it without reinstalling windows?

Most of the old games have compatibility issue with the latest window. Run them with the windows default "Program Compatibility" program. Before that you should know when was this game created and for what window so that you can choose the right option in Compatibility software.

The error code means an invalid image format. Specifically, you are attempting to start an application which is designed to run on 64-bit operating system. But your computer is running 32-bit Windows. The 32 bit application cannot load a 64 bit dll, thus the mixing up 32 bit with 64 bit environment brings about problem.

0xc000007b error is also has something to do with programs installed on your computer such as .NET Framework, Direct X and Microsoft Visual C++. It tends to appear when you try to launch high graphic games like Far Cry Assassins without updating to .net Framework. When .NET framework is absent from your computer, you'll not be able to run apps build on it.

If the error code is caused by application error, you can fix it by reinstalling the application which you are trying to run.

First, you need to uninstall it and remove anything related to the software from computer. Then restart computer before starting reinstallation. During installation, please turn off antivirus software.
