After silent deploy cant open sketchup 2017 error mfc140u.dll

After deploying msi silently the program cant start because mfc140u.dll is missing from your computer.

MSDN: how to solve mfc140u.dll is missing Error in mfc VC++

I ran into the same issue. .NET and C++ requirements are met, according to this SketchUp Make and SketchUp Pro link, but no mention of C++.

However, after installing “Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable (x64) - 14.0.24215” (the machine had 2013 installed), SketchUp launches right away.

I’m combed through the web and SketchUp’s forums and have not found anything indicating a minimum VCRED version (only place I found is the link above that mentions .NET needs to be 4.5.2 or higher).

My post here clearly indicates VC++ 2015 Redistributable Update 3:

I agree that it should be listed on the HW and SW Requirements help center page.
