VS 2017 - Cannot Access Extensions and Updates


  • I have installed Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise from and offline package downloaded by this same computer. I have registered the product. Whenever I try to access the Extensions and Updates option from Tools > Menubar, this error occurs. 

    "Retrieving the COM class factory for component with CLSID {1770F0C4A-1CD3-4DE7-A32C-71DBBB9FA36D} failed due to the following error: 8007007e The specified module could not be found.
    (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E)"

    What should I do?

    I am using Windows 10 Education.
