Have you used our "Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015" predefined prerequisite?
Can you replicate the prerequisite corrupted installation on multiple machines?
We can't replicate the issue in-house, but we have a user that has this problem on multiple machines.
If so, it will be useful if you could offer us more details about how can we replicate the issue.
With all our research and testing, we can't work it out. It seems to happen only on Windows 8.1.
The problem might be that KB2999226 [https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2999226
] (Universal CRT) which is part of the Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 failed to install. In some cases manually uninstalling "Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio" and reinstalling does not solve the issue.
An example from another application with this issue:

Could Advanced Installer pick up if an older version of "Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015" was used then install the updated version? That may help some of the users.
