I am trying to install Permier Elements 2018. The PC has Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable (x86) - version: 14.23.27820 alread installed, the Premier Elements installer tries to install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable and then fails. 

 

What is the best way to fix this?
