Im trying to install Splunk 5.0 in my windows 7 64 bit laptop. Downloaded the 64 bot splunk.msi and started the installation. The installation failed saying Microsoft visual c++ runtime failed to load the c library python.exe.

Can you guys get me to the solution for installing Splunk?

Thanks in advance,

OK, I figured this one out. For some reason I had to rename my Python folder.

1) I uninstalled Splunk
2) I renamed my Python folder from:
C:\Python27
to:
C:\Python27_old
3) I reinstalled Splunk with no errors
