Description:
(1) Workbench Installation Wizard shows "Download Prerequisites" button when Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable is not installed.

(2) But the page which is opend by "Download Prerequisites" button is for MySQL Workbench 6.2.x (and earlier than 6.3.9), the page still points to Microsoft Visual C++ **2013** Redistributable Package.

How to repeat:
I attached screen-shot for step (1) and see below for step (2)

Suggested fix:
Make a prerequisites page for MySQL Workbench 6.3.9 and later, And fix the XML to open it.
