If you're facing error 0xc0000135 while starting Google Chrome on your system due to which Chrome crashes, then this article will show you how to fix it.

Today, I was trying to download some new extensions for Google Chrome. Thus opened Chrome, what I see pulled me to write this article. It was the Windows – Application Error. There is nothing to help except the error code itself i.e. 0xc0000135. Also the Chrome crashed at start up.

To fix it, initially I tried the Microsoft Support. But it didn’t helped and I end up blaming that this is Chrome’s error and it would be better if I try Chrome community. Finally I got the solution and here it is…

FIX : Error 0xc0000135 While Starting Google Chrome

1. First of all download the latest version of Microsoft .NET using below links. Remember here to, solve the error 0xc0000135 on other apps, running latest version of .NET is the first priority. However, my system was already running latest version of .NET when I got the error.

Download Microsoft .NET 4.0

Online Installer

Offline Installer [Direct Link]

2. Press Windows Key + R, type following command in the Run dialog box (replace XXXX with username) and hit Enter:

C:\Users\XXXX\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe -no-

3. Moving on, now refer to Chrome desktop icon and right click on it. Select Properties and add the same command provided in step 2.

Click Apply followed by OK. Now in the Windows 7 search box, search for Google Chrome, you’ll see two Google Chrome shortcuts, one is older and another is you just created right now, select the later. You can also try this:

Right click on Google Chrome desktop icon. Select the Troubleshoot compatibility. After successfully applying troubleshooting effects, choose Start program which leds you Chrome but without Aero effects.

That’s it!
