Windows (Lightning beta 5.0.4): WordPress installation failed

I’m not able to finish a WordPress installation with the new Local Lightning - Windows 10.
“Error Installing WordPress for site-name” is the error.

Hi Gregg,

Thanks for trying out the Lightning beta!

Can you try downloading and running the two files below:

The links above are directly from Microsoft, but if you want to review what you are downloading, see https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads

Once you run those installers, you can try re-launching Local then creating another site.

Thanks, that made it work…
