Ableton 9 "can't load protection component os error 0x7e"

I opened up Abelton, and my song said “missing VST” for my Archetype Abasi. So I deleted and reinstalled the VST and still nothing. I even deleted and reinstalled ableton with no luck.

I check iLok and it shows it as activated on my computer

I keep getting the error “can’t load protection component os error 0x7e”

I have even disabled AVG, and ran Ableton as admin and this error keeps popping up everytime i rescan. Any ideas?

Hey @markdaytononline. Try reinstalling all the Visual C++ redistributable packages, then restart your system and run the application/plugin as admin. Some sites include them all in one link, like this one:
