Error Code R-1603

Okay so I have already look at many of the other answer to this problem to this issue but they don’t work for my situation. They say to uninstall/reinstall VS2015 which I don’t actual have. All I have that is close to this is Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable(x86) and (x64). I also have download VS2015 both (x64) and (x86) get the same error. What else can I do?
