You shouldn't need to install visual studio but the DLLs instead. Also try restarting your computer once you've installed them.
Please let me know if you need more help.
OH yeah i meant the redistributables, that was the post i followed first before making my own post and nothing changed, not even a restart
grabbed pretty much everything from the redistrubutable page and directx, restarted, and still the same error :(
The only other thing we can think to suggest is to try downloading the Steam version of the demo instead: https://store.steampowered.com/app/631860/Gataela/
