Good morning from Spain!  Been awhile since I last posted as I moved from Colorado to Valencia.

After the move, I setup my gear yesterday, and all connected and ran.

This morning, I updated PHD2 2 ver 2.6.13Dev4.  Now, it won't run giving a Windows error: The application was unable to start correctly 0xc000007b

 

Thoughts, other than uninstall and clean install?  

 

Thanks!

Rick

What release of Windows?

 

Try to do a 'Repair' on PHD2.  If that doesn't work uninstall, remove the left over directories and reinstall.

Win 11 23H2 64 bit.  I reinstalled the base (non dev) 2.6.13 and it works fine.  I tried the 2.6.13 Dev2, and same error.

Post the problem here along with any screen shots and logs.  Ask the developers for help.

Yes sounds like a new bug in the dev.

 

Just re-installing, not un-installing PHD2, overwrites the old install and keeps your settings.
