Audacity 2.3.0 requires "Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 " which may not be present on old Windows systems. You can get it from here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-ie/downloa ... x?id=48145
A reboot may be required after installing this package.

Audacity is not installed correctly.
Remove all instances of Audacity from your system, then re-download the .EXE installer from: https://www.audacityteam.org/download/ and reinstall by running the .EXE installer.
