ERROR Error 997 while installing Microsoft visual c++ 2008 x86 (SOLVED !)

i'm getting Error 997. Overlapped I/O operation in progress , while installing the microsoft c++( redistributable ) 2008 x86 , my windows is 10 and 64bit .

also i dont have this update : KB2918614 since some websites said i should unistall it to fix it

i need this to play LA NOIRE 

UPDATE : ALSO this might help , lately when i'm trying to play a game in steam ( dota 2 ) everytime it tries to perform a visualc++ install which i don't understand why 

UPDATE : SOLVED !!! : 


SOLVED !! : 

Finally, this simple procedure worked for me:



In short: Rename the folder C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\S-1-5-18 to C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\S-1-5-18_old

During successful installation of KB3045318 this folder is created again, automatically.

At the end, I copied the missing files from the original folder to the new folder.
