XBoxStat.exe Application Error

Hello,

I tried to install the driver software for the XBox 360 controller on Windows 7 64bit after formatting my computer (before this it worked flawless). But everytime i try to start it the following error occurs: "Couldn't run the application properly (0xc000007b)". I already tried reinstalling it and older versions of the driver (v1.1 and v1.2). Seems like Windows detects the controller without the driver as well, but i can't use all buttons (i.e. the analog stick).

Thanks for your help, but unfortunately neither One nor Three did help. I skipped Two, because the driver refused to work even immediately after installation, so I doubt, that the problem lies in a newly installed program.

I tried deinstalling every program, which I installed after the driver. Still the same error. There is the possibility i missed one, since i formatted my computer, installed several new programs and the driver somewhere between the other installations.
