The Dependency Walker report does not show any abnormal errors. The errors that alarmed you are entirely normal. The Dependency Walker is not a perfect tool and its report is hard to read.

There are several reasons for the 0xc00007b error. The most common cause of this issue is the incompatibility between the 32/64-bit application and the 32/64-bit architecture of your system.

An example of this is when a 32-bit application tries to execute itself on a 64-bit system and vice versa. In other words, there is a mixture of software blocks, each compiled for a different architecture.

I suggest to uninstall the software in question and then reinstall, after ensuring that all the architectures match your computer. Check specifically all Adobe products that you have installed, so they are all of the bitness.
