Still an AllStar
ProSeries support offered this workaround:
1. Click Add or Remove programs
2. Find and select Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable (x64). Click Change button.
3. Click repair button
I do not have that file on my computer, but do have identical files with different year dates on them.
This fix also says its for servers, and I'm installed on a stand alone computer.
Click this link and the file will download (probably to your download folder) https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=52685
I know others have posted this issue, but I can not seem to find any of them now.
The unexpected behavior regarding the ProSeries Professional version has been reported. Please request Local IT support with uninstalling the 2017 Microsoft Visual C++ x64 and x86 redistributable, restarting the machine, and then running the ProSeries Professional installation, in order to re-install.
If a non-Intuit application is affected by uninstalling, please have IT re-install.
Hope this helps!

** Is this still the recommended fix?
** Will this uninstall, effect any of my other programs?
Some of us don't have an IT department and have no idea what you are talking about.
NOR do you explain the implications of uninstalling something on our harddrives.
Please respond as we have paid for a software from your company that we cannot install.
