Please try downloading the setup file again. Make sure to disable all antivirus and security software. Simple double click on setup.exe should work.

Yes, it says:

You currently have:

MS.NET Framework 4.6.2

MS VC++ 2010 Redistributable x86

MS VC++ 2010 Redistributable x64

MS VC++ 2012 Redistributable x86

MS VC++ 2012 Redistributable x64

You still require:


So I think, I don't require anything else.

This is usually resolved by redownloading or making sure to extract the download. This could be something to do with the OS that's blocking it from running. Try running Windows update to make sure everything is up to date. Apart from this, I can't see any other issue.
