Actually, please try this first:
1. Right-click on the Start button (which is the windows logo icon located at the bottom left of the computer's screen), then click on Control Panel
; (or press at the same time the two keys Windows and R on the keyboard, then type control then click OK)
, then open System and Security -> System, then check if the System type is 32-bit or 64-bit
; (or press at the same time the two keys Windows and Pause on the keyboard.)
2. Then download and install the "Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 Update" at the website below first, and check:
, there, click on the Download button
