    Update: I just tried that method and it works like a charm.
    Just repair all of the Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 update 4 redistributable package entries.. and restart.

    You might have to follow the same process again. When I get new updates from the insider program I do it first thing and that error doesn't occur.
