MySQL connector unable to detect installed Visual Studio redistributable

I am trying to install the MySQL ODBC connector for Windows((mysql-connector-odbc-8.0.16-winx64.msi) and it keeps throwing the following error: This application requires Visual Studio 2015 X64 Redistributable. Please install the Redistributable then run this installer again.

I already downloaded and installed the Visual C++ Redistributable but the connector is unable to detect it. I looked up various forums and tried different solutions like repairing the installed redistributable, installing the x86 version along with the x64 version of 2015, downloaded older and newer versions of the redistributable to see if that would work but nothing works.

I would really appreciate if I could get any inputs on how to resolve this since I really need to install the connector on my machine.
Thank you.
