    I can't download files. I copied an installer to the Windows VM, tried to run but it seems to need Visual Studio or C++ or something. I was getting errors like "mfc140u.dll" and others. I tried to install Visual Studio but the download failed. This isn't the first time this failed. I'm evaluating Parallels and if this works, I'll be happy to purchase it for my computers, but how can I get this to work?

    Try repairing your Visual Studio C++ installations. If that doesn't help, uninstall and reinstall them.
    You can download them here.
