vcruntime140_1.dll a directory already exists

Nolettuce 1 Reputation point

Trying to download Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2022 redistribution (x64) but keep getting the message, "Cannot create the file C:\Windows\system32\vcruntime140_1.dll" . A directory with this name already exists. Cancel the install and try installing to a different location. I tried looking for it in sysyem32 but cannot find it. Just want to see if there is a way I can delete the one that already exists and install the one I am trying too.
