    Figured this out! Here's the workaround:
    1. Download and install x64 Visual C++ redist to a x64/x86 PC
    2. Find the package cache, should be the most recently modified folder in C:\ProgramData\Package Cache\. For example, it may be C:\ProgramData\Package Cache\{3407B900-37F5-4CC2-B612-5CD5D580A163}v14.32.31332\packages\vcRuntimeMinimum_amd64
    3. Open the command prompt in that location
    4. Run msiexec /i vc_runtimeMinimum_x64.msi ADDEPLOY=1
    That's it, should be good to go from there.

    (forgot to add, you'll want to copy the contents of that folder to the same spot on your ARM64 machine)
