    Bad image error while trying to install directx error code: 0xc000012f

    Hello. I just freshly installed Windows 10 and I'm having this error while trying to install directx through Steam or independently.

    Tried following things;

    - Updating almost everything on computer.
    - Clean boot.
    - Safe mode.
    - sfc /scannow
    - installed directx through microsoft's website.
    - run dism with all three modes. check, scan, restore.

    But still getting this error while trying to install directx for individual games. And there is no exception, I get his error for every game I tried to install. Anybody encountered something like that or know a solution?

    Edit: Had to reinstall windows 10 with another iso file.
