Although the articles did not entirely apply to me, it got me in the right direction. It mentioned something about a redistributable package, I found those and installed them manually one by one.
Until now I did not know you could do that. The manual installs worked fine in  normal mode. And yes the user account I used is an administrator account.
Other posts I saw about renaming files did not apply as thosefiles did not exists on my machine.

Thanks all for the quick replies.
