Hi James, I also had the same problem a while back. Since I had the same architecture and Windows version, I believe you may be having the same problem. In my case, the error was caused due to bad registry keys which were left over due to installations of Custom MSI packages and/or Windows Updates. The culprit registry keys can be found at 


I downloaded a  tool from Microsoft , which fixed the keys. Following this, I re-installed the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 redistributable, and had no more issues.
