@JanssJS I ran a hard scan of my drive and then reinstalled the game. It works now!

Hi, I recently had the same problem following this update. I had to go through all my mods and make sure that they were updated otherwise I came across the error code. However, when I put my saved games back in the folder the error code started to pop back up. So, after trying literally everything I just came to a decision to delete my saved games and start over. Ever since I haven't gotten the error code again.

Error Message after installing The Sims Snowy Escape

★★★★ Novice

Every time I launch Origin I get a message that says 

"igoproxy64.exe - Application Error

The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b).

Click OK to close application"

but Origin will launch. However when I try to start The Sims 4, I get this message:

"TS4_x64.exe - Application Error

The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b).

Click OK to close application"

And The Sims 4 will not start.

 

I have uninstalled Origin and The Sims and reinstalled both and I am still getting the message.

 

Is this a known issue? Is there a fix?

Hi! I fixed my game by doing a hard scan of my drive, restarting my PC, and waiting until the next day. I had been receiving errors before that I fixed MSVCP140.dll and VCRUNTIME140.dll. I fixed those and then received the same error that you are getting. Do not download new dll files from the internet as they may be corrupted. I can walk you through any steps you may need.

@LindseyCSure!

I have a link that will explain it better than I can:

Alternatively, you can try:

If these don't work let me know! I can try and help some other way.

I have literally done EVERYTHING that EA support/other simmers/forums have told me, I'm going to loose my mind. I have updated all mods, updated the game, repaired it god knows how many times, un-installed and re-installed Origin AND Sims 4 twice, allowed access to the administrator, checked the virus and protection tab and made sure there was access, tried to do a hard scan but I don't have a Tools tab in my properties. I can get into Origin fine, but as soon as I click play it comes up with the "igoproxy64.exe- Application error. This application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click ok to close the application" error message. I haven't been able to play the Sims 4 in weeks because it just won't work! EA support didn't help. I am going insane - does anyone have any other suggestions or can honestly help me with this PLEASE?!
