trouble opening Inventor 2014

I installed everything last night and everything but Inventor works.  It gives me an error saying: "The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142). Click OK to close the application."  Any help?  I am using a new Windows 8 laptop so I don't see why it can open Designer but not Inventor.  I already ran a system scan and it didn't fix it.  Any help is appreciated.

What are your laptop specs?

Was this install a fresh and clean install with no previous versions loaded?

Looking at the sticker here. AMD Dual-Core Processor E1-2500, 15.6" HD LED LCD, AMD Radeon HD 8240, 4 GB DDR3 L Memory, 750 GB HDD. No I have not had any previous versions installed.

Install all the SP's and Hot-Fixes and updates for the SP's.


Try RMB on the Inventor icon and select the Run as Administrator.
