Native Access crashes on install with a weird error message, any ideas?

Dear Anyone.

Dunno if I'm allowed to post a pic., so I'm just saying what the error message says.

This happens every time I try to install Native Access in Windows 10.

Rectangular brown box with "Microsoft Visual C++ 2022 X64 Minimu Runtime - 14.30.30708" along the top. Inside the box....

"The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is unavailable. Click OK to try again, or enter an alternate path to the folder containing the installation package 'vc_runtimeMinimum_x64.msi' in the box below."

I click OK to try again but that happens every time and I can't find 'vc_runtimeMinimum_x64.msi' anywhere (whatever that is!)

Does Native Access only work in Windows 11 or something these days? I'm sure I've read about it working in Windows 10 but maybe that's been phased out?

Yours puzzledly - I hope you can help me get it to work -

Chris.

    You're evidently missing the Microsoft Visual C++ executables which should have been in a May 2022 Windows Update.

    Since they are not bundled with Native Access, you should look HERE for the version for your OS. (I'd guess x64).

    Also, if you are trying to DL & install NA2, there are links in the Support section for NA1, which may be more stable, if the above proves unsatisfactory.
