2. Remove the following: "Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable (x64)" & "Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable (x86)"

3. Restart

4.Go here.

5. Download and install: "vcredist_x64.exe" & "vcredist_x86.exe"

6. Restart.

7. Reinstall Maya.

In my spare time (!), I experiment with animation, and recently kept an Animated Journal.
