I see something like this with the MSI installer - but the error is truncated.

Downloading zip (non-MSI installer) and running exe pops up a need for VCRUNTIME140_1.dll

I was able to install the latest VC runtime (in my case, Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable (x64) - 14.24.28127) which allows the install to complete without error.

I got the latest runtime from here:
https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads

It appears that VC 2019 now enables a compiler setting by default that requires an updated runtime to resolve the dependency on vcruntime140_1.dll

Hello Holger Blum,

Thank you for the bug report.
Please install VC++2019 redistributable, which will fix the problem. Thanks
