GPU Computing SDK Browser Error The application failed to initialize properly (0xc000007b)

I installed the following:

on a Windows XP Professional SP3 system with a GeForce 9500 GT GPU. When I tried to run NVIDIA GPU Computing SDK 4.0 Browser, the browser didn’t start, and there was a dialog box that said “The application failed to initialize properly (0xc000007b). Click on OK to terminate the application.”

Did I miss any step in the installation?

Additional info:
I have Visual Studio 2008 installed as well as .Net Framework 4.

Thank you.
