IssueWhen trying to install Tableau Desktop the following error occurs,
- Tableau Desktop
- Windows 10
- Visual C++ Redistributable 2017
- Visual Studio 2017
- Uninstall Visual C++ Redistributable 2017
- Reinstall Tableau Desktop.
CauseWhen Tableau Desktop is installed, part of the installation is VC_redist for 2015. If VC_redist for 2017 is installed, it will not allow an earlier version of VC_redist to be installed, causing the installation of Tableau Desktop to fail.
