Download Service fails to start after an upgrade to v.4.2.251
EcoStruxure Security Expert
Security Expert Server v4.2.251
Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable (x86) - 12.0.30501; (VC++ 2013 Redist v188.8.131.52501.0) is not installed. This package is a pre-requisite to installing Security Expert v4.2.251.
It was needed for extending the Suprema integration but did not get added to the installer for that version. This is now packed with the Security Expert installer.
There are two options to resolve this;
1. [Preferred Option] Install the current release of Security Expert. This required package is now included in all new versions of the Security Expert installation file.
2. Install the package from Microsoft before installing Security Expert 4.2.251. Locate the file on the Microsoft site https://www.microsoft.com/en-nz/download/details.aspx?id=40784. Download and install vcredist_x86.exe, the 32 bit version (because Security Expert is a 32 bit application), before performing the upgrade.
