Description:
When downloading 32-bit or 64-bit version ODBC Connector from:
https://dev.mysql.com/downloads/connector/odbc/
it's not possible to install when VS2017 is installed on the machine.

The installer wants the Visual Studio 2015 Redistributable and doesn't recognize that a newer version (Visual Studio 2017 Redistributable) is installed.

How to repeat:
* It's not possible to install the Visual Studio 2015 Redistributable, since there is a newer version.
* Only solution is to uninstall VS2017 (what takes a lot of time!), install the connector, and reinstall VS2017. Source: https://developercommunity.visualstudio.com/content/problem/14701/visual-c-redistributable...

Suggested fix:
Is it possible to offer a ODBC Connector-version with newer redistributables?
