While doing this, you might run into the error message because of the installation file being corrupted or unauthenticated. Therefore, we suggest that you try to download the required version of the software directly from the Microsoft Website.
Solution 3: Replacing Certain Files (ONLY FOR MATLAB USERS)
If you are trying to install the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable file because it came bundled with the MATLAB software and are getting the error while doing so, you can fix this issue simply by replacing certain files. For more detail:

- Make sure to replace the files if the prompt appears and then, run the setup.exe installer inside in the same folder that you pasted in.
- After the installation finishes, before running the MATLAB application, go to your MATLAB installation folder which is typically the following.
- Once inside the folder, copy the files and paste them into the previous folder that has the following location.
- Make sure to replace the files and now, you can run the MATLAB from its main executable it should work just fine without the Error 1935 Visual C++ occurring.
Solution 4: Start the Windows Modules Installer Service
If the Windows Modules Installer service has been disabled on your computer, the Visual C++ or the .NET Framework installation will not proceed. This is because the service needs to be active for the proper installation of all the modules. In order to activate it:

- Launch the MATLAB installer and wait for it to be extracted.
- After completion, navigate to the following directories, if you are on the R2016a version or earlier.
- In these folders, run the Visual C++ installer executables and wait for them to be installed.
- If you are on the R2016b version, navigate to the following folder.
- Now, make sure to run the Visual C++ installer inside this folder and the Error 1935 Visual C++ issue should be fixed.
Solution 6: Restart .NET Framework Software
