Cannot run Audacity

I have just downloaded and installed Ver 2.3.2 on Win 7 ultimate and cannot run Audacity. The error I get is This program cannot start because api-ms-win-crt-runtime-l1-1-0.dll is missing

Your computer’s version of “Visual C++ Redistributable” is probably too old. To update it, download and run the installer from Microsoft:

The file that you need to download and install is: x86: vc_redist.x86.exe
