I verified integrity of game files on steam;
Drivers are updated;
Reinstalled the game.
still no fix, altough, no problems on other games whatsoever.

I'm running a i5-8600k, nvidea1080 8gb, 16gb ram.

If you have some information I would be very happy to ear from you soon,
if you need more info about something just say, i'll be in touch.

Hey man,

I actually stumbled upon this while looking up a problem that I'm having, but maybe I can help. If you type in 'firewall' in the start menu, and select 'Allow an app through Windows firewall', scroll down the list and make sure there are 2 entries for 'Insurgency Sandstorm'. One of them is the steamapps\common\sandstorm\InsurgencyEAC.exe, the other is steamapps\common\sandstorm\insurgency\binaries\win64\insurgencyclient-win64-shipping.exe. The second one is the one you're getting an error on, and I bet for some reason you don't have the firewall entry for it.

THE ABOVE FIX DOES NOT WORK.

I have the exact same issue. Purchased and downloaded Sandstorm last night, no launch due to 0xc000007b error.

Ive reinstalled all redist packages, even ran the UE4 prerequisite package to no avail. Deleted binary folders and verified, still no dice. This problem needs to be sorted out asap or else sandstorm is going to have a lot of refunds.

Please fix this!!! Really wanna be playing this game we've all paid for!!!!

So for me the windows update worked. The same error was on the windows system build 17XX and i updated it to system build version 1803. Then error did not occur again.
