I removed Norton Internet Security 2012 from my PC two days ago (and then installed a trial of a new AV)and, on the advice of a friend, I also ran the Norton Removal Tool. My attempt to install MS Update KB2565063 failed and I received the following:

SetUp.exe Unable to Locate Component:

This application has failed to start because SetUpEngine.dll was not found. Re-Installing the application may fix the problem.

Any suggestions regarding a fix would be appreciated it.

Thank you again.

Is Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable installed and reflected in Add/Remove Programs?

Is SP1 for Visual C 2010 installed and reflected in Add/Remove Programs?


I don't have the SP installed, but I do have VC 2010 installed...I don't have the update you reference.
