Hi sle3pingz

Try to run a SFC /scannow

Open up an elevated command prompt . Click on the button type CMD inside the Search programs and files box right click on CMD under Programs (1) choose Run as administrator

Note   Note
Command Prompt opens to C:\Windows\System32>_


SFC /scannow
Press [ENTER] after you typed in the command .

Try un-installing the app, re-boot, and re-install it. Doing that might get the WINSXS (Side by side) folder back in synch with the app. But it probably won't - WINSXS problems are very difficult to fix.

You will likely have to either restore the laptop to it's original configuration or do a re-install of Windows itself.

If a reinstall does not fix it, it's likely you need the correct C++ package with the missing dll's

I would start with the 2010 package, but there are 2008, 2005, etc.

Download Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x64) from Official Microsoft Download Center

You could use Dependency Walker to find which files are missing
