Starting GAUSS: gauss.exe-Application Error (0xc000007b)

I received my license file, but I am still not able to start GAUSS.  I get the following message:

gauss.exe-Application Error

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

Click OK to close the application.

How do I get GAUSS to start?

There are a few key things that are very important to do when you install GAUSS:

1.  You need to install with Administrator privileges.  It is NOT enough to have an Administrator account type.  To do that, I suggest uninstalling GAUSS.  Then right click on the GAUSS installer (msi) file and "Run as Administrator" to re-install GAUSS.

2.  During installation, click on the box that says:  Install for everyone

3.  Place the GAUSS License file in your gauss14 directory.  Do not open the license file or change it in any way.  It must retain the *.lic file extension for GAUSS to work.

4.  Start up GAUSS.  It should run.
