SDR Console will not start


Hi, I just bought an SDRPlay RSP-2. SDRuno works fine as do all the other SDR programs I have (cuSDR, PowerSDR mRX, SDR#). But SDR Console will not run. I get a "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b)" error. Which apparently can occur if an application tries to call a 32 bit .dll on a 64 bit machine. However it also seems to indicate dozens of other things as well.

I have tried installing SDR Console V2 and V3 on my C: drive and on my G: drive (preferred because C is a small SSD). I have reinstalled it at least 5 times. The installation ran smoothly although it always reloads the Windows redistributes even though they are already installed.

I get the same error when I run the program every time, even double clicking the application in Explorer. The SDR Console 'Reset Console' and 'Select Identity' utilities create the same error. I am pretty sure this is the only application that I have tried to install that has failed to run. In desperation I even downloaded the 32 bit version of SDR Console, but it failed to install because the system is 64 bit.

My machine is an i7 6700 PC with 16Gb RAM running 64 bit Windows 10. I tried running in administrator mode and in Win & and Win 8 emulation mode. I checked that the two Windows redistributes are installed correctly and they both report a successful install. I went on the SDR Console web page and checked the settings. I do not have any registry entry HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\ (V2)\SDRConsole and I do not have any user files directory in G:\Users\Andrew\AppData\Roaming\

Any help much appreciated. I am not very happy with SDRuno so I want to try SDR Console V3. I would also like to try it with my ANAN radio.
