Error 0x000007b

Hi guys. I need to install the 64x version of Maya but it keeps giving me this error whenever i try to start the program. Its a problem ive been having for a long time and im really amazed that there is still no way to correct this. I even downloaded the sercive pack 2 version from the autodesk page but still nothing.
I was told that deleting the d3dx10_ files from the windows/system 32 folder and the reinstall it from the direct x page but it didnt work.
So if any of you have an insight on this please let me know.

this error means that it's attempting to start Maya 64-bit, but one of the DLL it's trying to use is 32-bit. It can happen if someone or a bad installer wrongfully copied some 32-bit DLL into Windows\System32

It's difficult to track down the problem. you could say that your windows install is kind of screwed at this point. Perhaps a system restore is in order. you can check with the x64 version of dependency walker http://www.dependencywalker.com/ on the maya executable to see what's getting loaded, and whether they are 32-bit or 64-bit

Yes, it's a shame that you need to be a programmer in order to solve this issue. If you have a programmer friend, run maya in Visual Studio, and in VS output window you'll get all the dlls that are loaded and which one gives you trouble.

But actually there aren't many options. If you'll check maya.exe dependencies:

Dumpbin /DEPENDENTS maya.exe


you'll get:

AppVersion.dll
FOUNDATION.dll
AnimEngine.dll
CommandEngine.dll
DependEngine.dll
ExtensionLayer.dll
DataModel.dll
3dGraphics.dll
RenderModel.dll
Shared.dll
SharedUI.dll
HWRenderMaya.dll
OGSMayaBridge.dll
Base.dll
adlmint.dll
QtCore4.dll
KERNEL32.dll
USER32.dll
QtGui4.dll
mfc100.dll
MSVCR100.dll
MSVCP100.dll
OLEAUT32.dll 


which means qt4 and vs 2010 redistribution. Maya has its own version of Qt4 dlls in its bin directory, which leaves us with vs2010. So I suggest that you try to install:

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down...s.aspx?id=13523

Another test would be to empty your system environment variable %path%. Since maybe there's a path there to a 32bit dlls instead of x64.
