  • Hi there,

    Have you tried repairing your VS2019 in Visual Studio Installer?

    Based on the error message, it seems that the side-by-side configuration is incorrect.

    Please uninstall all Visual C++ Redistributable items via Control Panel and update your VS2019 to the latest version.

    Then, run your VS2019 in Safe Mode.

    If it persists, please share us more details about the error so that we can investigate it further.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
