vst bridge error

I’m running cubase 8 elements on windows 7 64 bit
i have toontrack ez drummer ez mix and superior drummer 64 bit plugins installed and updated
i updated cubase to the latest patch as well as updating visual c++ from microsoft

I’m getting a runtime error when trying to find the toontrack vst plugins in the plugin manager

vst bridge.exe attempted to run the c library incorrectly.

its now causing cubase to freeze as well.

any suggestions would be great.
