I am trying to install SQL Server 2017 Express on Windows 10 and it is failing.
Here are the details it shows me after failure:
Use the following information to resolve the error, and then try the setup process again.
Here is the failure reason :
An error occurred for a dependency of the feature causing the setup process for the feature to fail.
I got the following error:
§ Error installing Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable
VS Shell installation has failed with exit code 1638.
Error code: 1638

I have Windows 10 and Visual Studio 2017 installed. There could be a problem where I installed SQL Server Management Studio 2017 before I installed SQL Server.
I use a similar setup on my personal computer which works fine but in the office, it doesn't.
And one more difference is in the installation is that it affects C++ Redistributable which is already installed but at work whenever it is failing, it recommends it to be installed in the list of components.
