The same installer worked in Windows 7 Pro - I was able to use the same installer to install Visual Studio 2015 successfully under Windows 7 Pro, however, this issue happens to Windows 10 Pro.


2.) Solution

I.) Uninstall all Visual C++ distributable libraries (for all 2012,2013,2016 for both x86 & x64).




II.) Download Visual C++ 2015 distributable libraries.

Download for both x86 and x64 builds.

Install both (x86 and x64) - even if the PC is 64-bit.



III.) Run the Visual Studio 2015 installer again.

It will reinstall the Visual C++ distributable libraries (for all 2012,2013 for both x86 & x64).

After which it would complete the whole installation as expected.
