Thank you briandrys
I followed your link and installed the Microsoft Visual C++2015 as suggested. But I am still getting the same error report 'TheVcRedist installer failed with error code 1. Features which require VcRedist may not operate properly' - Installation Aborted. when I attempt to install Lightworks
Any other ideas please?

Hello,

Try the latest Lightwork 2020.1 beta. It has some significant modifications on how the Microsoft link libraries are handled and might fix your problem.

Thank you hugly
I downloaded the lightwork beta 64 bit version which reported ' This app can't run on your PC'
Then i downloaded lightworks beta 32 bit version which seems to be working - I am very happy - thank you.
Might I have a problem with 2 versions on my computer now?

You can have two versions of Lightworks on your computer.

Good to hear that it works for you with the 32-bit version of Lightworks.

As a matter of interest, are you running the 32-bit version of Windows?

Oh that's good news - i am happy to go - thank you so much.
My computer says it is running '32 bit operating system'
and 'x64 based processor'
Is that unusual?
Thanks

Yes, 32-bit Window 10 installations are quite unusual, nowadays. 64-bit systems have the advantage to be able address far more memory directly.

If you run 32-bit Window 10, neither the 64-bit version of Lightworks nor any other 64-bit application will run on your computer. It explains your initial problem and the error messages.
