Xpand!2 Install Stuck at Microsoft Visual C++ 2005

I've been trying to solve this problem for 2 hours...Googled every site on the internet and tried 50 workarounds.

Short story - can't install XPand!2 because install can't find vcredist.msi on 2005 C++ install. I'm on Windows 10...everything updated new.

Exact error message is:
"Error 1714. The older version of Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 cannot be removed. Contact your technical support group."

I even got to the point of downloading a new 2005, extracting using 7-Zip, pointed to new vcredist.msi...still said it was not correct installation path.

I'm dying to use this software. Any ideas?!? HELPPPPPPPPPPP
