Troubleshooting problems with Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2013

On Windows Understand depends on the Microsoft¬†Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2013. This should be installed during the Understand installation, but the Microsoft Installer doesn’t always run correctly and if it fails there could be problems running Understand. These problems usually take the form of error messages about¬†msvcr120.dll.To address this, navigate to the installer, right click on it and select Run as Administrator, install it with the default options, or click Repair if that choice is given.

On a 64 bit machine the installer for it can be found at:

C:\Program Files\SciTools\bin\pc-win64\vcredist_x64.exe
On a 32 bit system it is at
C:\Program Files\SciTools\bin\pc-win32\vcredist_x86.exe

If there are still problems running Understand after that, let us know what the errors are at
