Outlook will not start. Rather urgent.

Last Modified: 2020-01-19
When I attempt to start Outlook that I bought with Office 2016 I only get a popup error that says  Outlook.exe - Application Error. This application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000142) Click OK to close the application.

I tried it twice with the same result. I then rebooted the computer. Same error. What is my next step to fix this problem?
