That error in most cases means you (or the program you installed) copied some msvc runtime dlls (msvc?x.dll & co.) into c:\windows\system32 directory. All newer ones will refuse to load from that dir, displaying the massage you see.

To fix the problem remove those dlls from system32, they belong in c:\windows\winsxs directory tree.
