I just purchased and downloaded the VSPro version. Whenever I launch Reflector.exe (double click in windows explorer) I get an application popup with the following message: "Application Error : The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application." I click OK and it closes. There is an Informational event in the System log. The source is Application Popup. There's no other events in System or Application that consistently occur at the same time.
I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate and logged on with an account in the administrators group. I've copied the contents of the zip package to a folder in "Program Files", "Program Files (x86)" and "My Documents" and tried launching from all locations. I've tried using "Run as Administrator". I've tried the Compatibility Troubleshooter which I believe tried changing the compatibility settings to Windows XP SP 2. (I just recently moved from a 32 bit Win XP machine to a 64 bit Win 7 machine, so I'm new to the world of 64 bit, UAC and compatibility issues.)
I googled the error message and found several postings stating that the error code is INVALID_IMAGE_FORMAT. Mostly they suggested reinstalling. So I downloaded the zip package a couple more times and still get the same thing. I downloaded and tried it from my Win XP machine and it works fine. I tried using 7zip and the native windows explorer unzip. I also Unblocked the exe and dll files. (Only needed to do that when unzipping through explorer.)
I verified that versions 2.0, 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 of the .NET Framework were installed, with the latest service packs, using the method described here: [http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318785/en-us](http://support.microsoft.com/kb/318785/en-us "How to determine which versions and service pack levels of the Microsoft .NET Framework are installed").
What am I missing?Thanks, Paul
