      I have been trying to get myself to install Tableau Public Desktop for a

      week now but with no success.

      I have attached here 2 installation log files.  These logs show that the

      installation was successful without any error.

      But when I click on the icon on my desktop it does not.  Below is the error

      I get in the Event Viewer - Application Logs

      Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable (x86) - 14.15.26706

      Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable (x64) - 14.15.26706


      I have uninstalled and reinstalled a number of times and also executed a

      repair but still no success.


      Any suggestion/assistance is highly appreciated.  Thank you in advance.
