Citrix XenCenter crashes with error 0xc000007b

Author: Ingmar Verheij

After launching Citrix XenCenter if crashed with error 0xc00007b and exited immediately. Although my work laptop is really in need of some TLC – it needs a clean install, I preferred troubleshooting the issue.

A quick trace with Sysinternals Process Monitor showed a dynamic link library (DLL) being loaded that I didn’t expect: Airfoilinject3.dll.

Airfoil is an application that helps you to send any audio from your Windows machine to AirPlay devices all around the house. I installed it so I can play audio from any application (like my browser) to an Airport Express.

The problem was solved by adding an exclusion in Airfoil.
