Issue:
We have Harvest 12.5 and while doing a test upgrade receives the attached error message.

"Error 1723. There is a problems with this Windows Installer package. A DLL required for this install to complete could not be run. Contact your support personnel or package vendor"

Assuming it is due to corrupted installation media I downloaded setup files again and got the same result in second attempt also
Resolution:

Follow these steps:

Install Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable on the Windows system as a pre-requisite.
