The MySQL ODBC Driver 5.1.13 is very old and it is no longer supported.
However, the error does look like the C++ redistributable is missing.
You should try VC++ 2010 and 2012 redistributables. These two versions VC++ were used for building MySQL ODBC Driver 5.1.

You can also try the version 5.3, which might work for you. Although the ODBC Driver 8.0 can work, it requires some extra configuring, but the version 5.3 designed to keep compatibility with MySQL Server older than 8.0. If I understand things right you have some old version of MySQL Server.

The MySQL ODBC Driver 5.3 can be downloaded from here:
