Additional Information

also, other symptom and resolution:

We are trying to install DATACOM Server Client (V15 – SO03997_64BIT) and CAICCI (V14.1.2 64BIT) on a WINDOWS 2008 Server 
And we are getting following error: 

The program can't start because VCRUNTIME140.dll is missing from your computer.Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem. 

We cross checked agains any other PC/Server and find that on the Windows 2008 Server no “microsoft visual c++ 20xx redistributable (64)” is available. 

Could this be the case? 

Answer is :YES 
"He installed Microsoft visual studio c++ 2017 redistributable (64 bit) on this Windows 2008 machine and the installation now works. "
