Not Solved RE: Soma gets an application error whenever I try to launch

Generally speaking, 0x000007b refers to an application being unable to start because it could not load a file it depends on. The most common problem for this may mean you have 64-bit drivers in your 32-bit folder, and/or 32-bit drivers in your 64 bit folder. It has to be fixed manually. I can't walk you through the steps as it could be any number of DLLs which are causing problems, but I would have a read of this thread to get Dependancy Walker installed on your computer: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/1049...0xc000007b

SOMA is a 64-bit application, so you want the x64 build of Dependancy Walker. There should still be a profiling option in the application; use that to run SOMA.exe (or SOMA_NoSteam.exe if that is there) from the Epic Games Store directory it was installed to. It should stop at the problematic .dll, which you will need to replace with either the 32-bit or 64-bit .dll.

Your 64-bit DLLs should be located at C:\Windows\system32, and your 32-bit DLLs in C:\Windows\SYSWOW64\
