    Hello @Mario Regele ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A forum.

    Please try to run the setup file of Visual C++ Redistributable package as administrator(right-click the setup file > run as administrator). Make sure that there’s no limitation on your machine, if the machine is from your organization, please try to communicate with your administrator/IT department to double confirm this.

    If this doesn’t work, please download this troubleshooter tool, run it and click Uninstalling, if the Visual C++ Redistributable package is listed, then select to uninstall it. After that install it again.

    Besides, please share us the detailed information which was recorded in the log file(mentioned in error message) for further check.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
