Error (0xc0000142) when running epic games launcher for the first time?

I have been trying for a few days. I have uninstalled and reinstalled, delete temporary files, crash files, and all appdata, checked my antivirus, everything I can think of. This error (0xc000142) appears with the message “the application was unable to start correctly” whenever I try to run the launcher. I have never been able to get in, it has been like this since my first attempt.

Did you found a permanent solution. I’m facing this error since yesterday but there’s no permanent fix.
