You're missing the needed C runtime files (the Universal CRT). The installer should install them for you, but it needs to be run as administrator to do so. See the notes at https://www.python.org/downloads/release/python-361/ which say:
  If installing Python 3.6.0 as a non-privileged user, you may need to escalate to administrator privileges to install an update to your C runtime libraries

(It says 3.6.0 but this is a typo - it refers to 3.6.1 as well).

You could probably also install the UCRT manually from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48234.
