Cannot install Wireshark on Win 11

When I try and install Ver 3.5.2 64-bit I get the following error:

Extract: vcredist_x64.exe... 100% Execute: "C:\Program Files\Wireshark\vcredist_x64.exe" /install /quiet /norestart vcredist_x64 returned 5

The expended error message is : The VisualC++ Redistributable installer failed with error 5. Please make sure you have KB2999226 or KB3118401 installed.

These updates date back to 2016 and are for W7 and I suspect wouldn't solve the problem. I've found a few mentions of this problem on this forum but no solution. Any help would be much appreciated.

Best regards
