Won't start up after Installation, System Error VCRUNTIME140_1.dll

After installation, Sketchup pro 2021 won’t start up.

Getting a SketchUP.exe - System Error
The code execution cannot proceed because VCRUNTIME140_1.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fix this problem.

I Reinstalled and it still has the same issue. I’m going to call sketchup for some help. Any help out there in the forums. Thank you.

My computer has exactly the same problem.
I have tried the recommendations on the Sketchup download page.
They don’t work.
No wonder they say that their suggestion only ‘may’ work

I would really appreciate any help - if anyone else has had success trying different methods to those suggested below - as I have tried the all.
