UPDATED: April 18, 2017
The error can be thrown when a user has both 32-bit (x86) AND 64 bit versions of the same vintage C++ library.
For example, (x86) 2008 C++ libraries AND (x64) 2008 C++ libraries installed to same machine.

Uninstall both the (x64) version and (x86) versions and download and install the .(x86) (32-bit) version.
Install as an Administrator (either sign in with Administrator rights or right-click and "run as administrator")
