MilkDrop 3 with error code: 0c000007b solved.
MilkDrop is a music visualization program that reacts to the beat and rhythm of music. It supports audio sources like Spotify, YouTube, SoundCloud, MPC-HC (Media Player Classic - Home Cinema), and many, many others.

My system: Windows 11 ver. 23H2 (OS Build 22631.3447) Video card: RTX 3060.

Download Milkdrop3.exe from: Releases · milkdrop2077/MilkDrop3
Features, how to install, and other helpful links: GitHub - milkdrop2077/MilkDrop3: MilkDrop 3.0, supports any audio source, double-preset (.milk2), loading presets based on beat detection and much more...

I downloaded and installed VC_redist.x64.exe, Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2022 Redistributable (x64) - 14.38.33135, from https://aka.ms/vs/17/release/vc_redist.x64.exe

When running 'dxdiag', DirectX Diagnostic Tool, the 'Display' tab reported that DirectX 12 Ultimate was disabled. From Nvidia, I then downloaded the newest Nvidia driver for my RTX 3060: 552.22-desktop-win10-win11-64bit-international-dch-whql.exe. I ran this installation file, deselecting the Nvidia Experience option, and selecting the 'clean' install option which gets rid of previous display settings. A subsequent run of 'dxdiag' reported that DirectX 12 Ultimate was now enabled.
Dxdiag.pngStill, MilkDrop 3 did not start, repeating the same error: "This application was unable to start correctly" error code: 0c000007b. The final correction to get MilkDrop 3 working was to download and install the DirectX End-User Runtimes (June 2010) from Download DirectX End-User Runtimes (June 2010) from Official Microsoft Download Center. I used 7-zip to extract the downloaded file, directx_Jun2010_redist.exe, to the folder named: directx9_Jun2010_redist. From within that folder run DXSETUP.exe. and Now MilkDrop 3 is working.
