Can't open 64 bit applications

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

After I installed a graphics update for my gtx 1060, I haven't been able to open some 64 bit applications and games. For example I have both 32 and 64 bit versions of Euro Truck Simulator 2. When I try to open the 64 bit version, it appears in task manager and then crashes. If I open the 32 bit though, it opens fine. I suspected that this issue might have to do with the update, so I uninstalled it and installed the previous update, but it still didn't fix the problem. What's wrong?

I assume you have a 64bit version of windows?
Is it just ETS2 or what else doesn't open in 64bit mode.

Maybe it's the 64bit visual C++, go to the games directory and look for a _VCRedist or _VCRedistributable, etc. Folder, there should be some installers in them, run the 64bit one and hit repair.

Didn't fix the problem. Its not just with games, its happening to some applications as well.

Interesting, I would try just reinstalling windows or booting another install on a separate drive and see if you have the same problem.
