How to fix Error 0xc00000e9 in Windows 10


The error  0xc00000e9 is a very common issue found on Windows 10 computers. If the system is already having this problem, don’t worry, here are some tips to help you fix it.

First of all, what does 0xc00000e9 mean?

When an application tries to access a certain part of the computer’s memory where there isn’t any memory allocated for that task or if the allocation of memory fails due to reasons that are beyond our control, then the application will crash without further notice. This will result in an error code with hexadecimal value 0xC00000E9 which can also be seen as 0xc00000e9.

This happens because the operating system doesn’t allow users to access some of its components. If you want to access these components, it is required for you to launch the program as administrator through the right-click menu or by using other means that can help elevate your privileges to allow you to work with the system files.

1.Reset Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Folders

Once again, this solution will solve all incompatibility issues with the msvcr100.dll file or any other files that are conflicting with it. First of all, you need to open Command Prompt as an administrator. Do this by right-clicking on its shortcut and selecting Run as Administrator. Now type cd “%windir%\system32” and press Enter. This should change the current directory to the System32 folder of Windows 10. Now type ren vcredist2010 install.exe and press Enter. This will rename the problematic vcredist2010 uninstaller file to install.exe, which should make it work now. Once this is done, type cd “%windir%” and press Enter. This should change the current directory to C:\Windows\System32 again. Type cd Microsoft Visual C++ x86 2010 Redistributable Setup, then press Enter key. Here, type command setup.exe /uninstall, then hit Enter key again to execute the command. Execute another command by typing cd “%ProgramFiles(x86)%” and press Enter. Then type for %i in (*.*) do %j if exist “%i” (gci /s-r *.dll) >list.bat and press Enter key to create a list of all files in all subfolders inside this folder. Now type ren *.* *.old, then press Enter. This will rename all the files inside that directory, except for two readme.txt files that should remain unchanged. Now execute the following command by typing cd C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\VC\vcpackages\CoreUpdate, then hitting Enter again followed by typing for %i in (*.*) do dpkg -i –force-all “%i”, finally pressing Enter.

2. Run SFC and DISM

One of the first things that you can do is to run a scan using the SFC and DISM tools. These are system file repair tools designed to work on Windows 10, but they can also help you with this particular error. After running these programs, restart your computer and see if it fixes the problem. It usually does since the issues are caused by corrupted or missing files.


3. Uninstall Incompatible Windows Updates

If you have some incompatible updates running on your computer, then it’s best to remove them. Check for these updates by going to Control Panel > Programs > Windows Update. Find the update that is causing you problems, then uninstall. You can also use our ultimate solution ( Solution 4 ).

4. System Restore

Windows 10 Error 0xc00000e9 is a code that you see when the program needed to run cannot be found on your computer. Sometimes, this can be resolved by System Restore. To do this, please follow the steps below:

– Go to Windows 10 Settings or press Win & I key at the same time.

– Click Update & Security in the Settings window.

– Click on Recovery in the left menu options. Then click on ‘Restart now’ under Advanced Startup. This will restart your computer and take you to a screen with several options for an advanced startup.

type in chkdsk /f and press Enter;

type Yes when it asks if you want to scan and fix disk errors; after several minutes (the time it takes depends on how much data there is), restart your computer; Windows will automatically repair the file system; try installing System restore.

5. Turn off automatic restart after updates are installed

Having the computer automatically restart itself after installing an update can cause problems with various system files, so it is highly advised that you turn this feature off. To do that, go to Control Panel > System and Security > Administrative Tools > Services. Find Windows Update Service or Automatic Updates there and double-click on it. Set Startup type to Disabled, check the option saying Stop service when the configuration is complete, click Start type in net stop wuauserv ( hit Enter ), Y key on your keyboard, then press Enter again. Click on the Start button to start the service

After that, go to Control Panel > System and Security > Windows Update, click Change Settings in the left menu, find Important updates drop-down menu below Update settings, and select Never check for updates (not recommended). Now, restart your computer.

6. Reinstall Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable

If an application is causing a conflict with a certain dynamic link library file called msvcr100.dll, then reinstalling Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable should fix this problem for good. If you already have all updates installed, then just go to Control Panel > Programs > Programs and Features. Then click the link called Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015, then select Change > Repair. Check to see if that solved your problem.

7. Reinstall Windows 10

If none of the above works, you have also the option of reinstalling Windows 10 completely. This will delete all data on your computer so make sure you have made a backup first! You can download the ISO from here.
