Question
When I try to install MIKE, I get the following error: “The installation of Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable Package appears to have failed’’. Why?

Answer
There may be a version conflict with the Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable Package installed on your PC and the one used in MIKE. You must uninstall the VC and install the exact version required by MIKE. The exact version can be found in the 'Prerequisite' folder.

Alternately, you may ignore the warning and the installation will continue. Remember, however, to 'repair' the installation in control panel afterwards.

Recently, we have seen conflict on the same PC between ArcGIS 10.8.1 and Microsoft Visual C++ 2013. If this is the case, removing ArcGIS 10.8.1 will fix the problem.
