I hope you are doing well. I am sorry for your experience with Acrobat Reader.
The issue that you are having trouble with is due to a mismatch in the version of C++ re-distributable files on your system.
You can try to repair the files through the Windows logo-> Control panel as shown in the pictures below:
You have to go through all the files from 2012 and ahead.
Click on change-> It will open the repair wizard-> you need to allow it to proceed.
Once all files are repaired, restart your computer, and the application should open.
Just in case it doesn't, you might want to install a newer version of the files through Microsoft's official link:
Hope this answers your question.
Thanks, but I still get 0xc000007b error.
