Just want to vouch for this if anyone else is having the same problem - I went to the latest install - didn't work - tried the second latest install, then it worked. Thank you!

You need to install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable Update 3 RC from the link supplied in the marked as answer reply to this thread, the 32bit version download and install of the data link library will be the most likely one that you will need, even if you are using a 64bit system, however, if the app that needs the file to run was developed for a 64bit OS only then you will need the 64bit version. You can install both versions on a 64bit system as a 64bit system will run both 32bit and 64bit apps and/or programs.

Here is the link again, for your convenience.

PCGuru, I have asked for that link to be removed. It includes incredibly dangerous advice. Never download DLLs from "DLL sites". They are often illegal and can include malware. So in trying to fix a problem you get a virus.
