How to Fix 0xc0150002 Application Error in Windows

Windows error code 0xc0150002 contains the “Application cannot start correctly” error message. This problem can be caused by corrupted system files.

This issue also sometimes occurs due to issues with Microsoft Visual C ++ when the required programming runtime is missing on your system. This error usually occurs on recently installed PCs or laptops, especially if not all applications are installed, as these runtime files are usually installed with various applications.

To see if you can resolve application error 0xc0150002, follow these steps:

Install and update drivers in Windows 10

Your devices can interact with drivers and thus work with your PC. Windows 10 includes a number of drivers for printers, monitors, keyboards, and other hardware already installed. If you connect a device without a preinstalled driver, you have nothing to worry about.

To change the automatic driver installation settings in Windows 10, you first need to find the driver settings page.

  • Enter “change device installation” in the Cortana search bar and click “change device installation settings.”
  • Choose whether Windows should automatically download the driver software or launch it itself. Automatic Updates is the easiest method, and Windows usually checks for driver updates and installs them.
  • When you click on the second option to manually install drivers, you will see a few more options. If you do not want Windows to install the driver software, select the second option: Never install driver software from Windows Update.
