advpack.dll assists with hardware and software installs by reading and verifying .INF files. Let us try the below listed methods one by one and check if the issue is resolved.
Method 1. SFC SCAN
Let us run the SFC scan and verify it prevents this error to occur.
Use the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe) to determine which file is causing the issue, and then replace the file.
To do this, follow these steps: 
1. Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.
2. Type the following command, and then press ENTER:
sfc /scannow
The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.
More Information about SFC scan can be found in this document:
Method 2.
Let us re register the advpack.dll file
1.Log on as an administrator.
2.Click Start, type cmd in the Start Search text box, right-click cmd.exe, click Run as administrator, and then click Continue.
3.At the command prompt, type regsvr32 advpack.dll, and then click OK.
Method 3.
Also make sure that the .NET Framework is also enabled on the computer as it is required to install this application.
Here is how:
1. Go to Start and in the search type "Turn Windows features On or Off".
2. Click on "Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1".
3. Expand "Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5.1" and place a check mark on 2 options listed.
