Mostly this issue comes up when systems are too old or are not up to date with MS updates and a pre-requisite is missing.

What the version of Windows and is it up to date with MS updates?

Are there other applications open that might lock the C++ Redistributable from being update?
In Add/Remove programs, can you click modify on the C++ Redistributable and Repair it?
