Failure to install v7.12 (Visual C++ problem)

The error (I can’t upload the file … ) is:

Error 1638. Could not run “vc_redist.x64.exe /install /log
“C\Windows\SetupLogs\Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2016 Redistributable x64.14.28.29914.0.Install.log” /passive /norestart”

I’m tempted just to uninstall that version of Visual C++ but I also have Autodesk Revit on this machine which is work critical and I know also uses Visual C++.

Suggestions please.

This problem was solved by downloading the installer directly (not via the company) and jumping to 7.13.
