You can get this error when you try to install BOINC on a system that does not have all the latest Windows updates.

First update your system completely, if the error persists, you will have to find a computer with the same version of Windows and navigate to its %systemdrive%:\Windows\WinSxS\ directory.
From here copy all the x86_Microsoft.VC* directories with their contents to your own system. Make sure the directory names stay intact.
Then reboot the system and try to install again.
