There is no reason in this case to install the VC++ redistributable
package. Python is written in C, so it only needs the C runtime, which
is now an OS component. I provided a link for the updated download for
the Universal C Runtime, KB3118401. The above Stack Overflow answer
mentions KB2999226, which is the old, outdated update from well over a
year ago.
