IssueWhen trying to install Tableau Desktop 10.4 the following error occurs,
- Tableau Desktop
- Windows 10
- VC_redist for 2017
- Visual Studio 2017
Uninstall VC_redist for 2017 and install Tableau Desktop. When 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.
Install the previous version of Tableau Desktop.
CauseTwo possible reasons for this to fail:
- Visual Studio post-2015
- Tableau Desktop 10.5 Beta
