Unity Hub Failing to Launch Unity Project

While trying to launch a project in Unity I kept getting met with, nothing… Click on the project the Hub disappears and nothing happens… Tried uninstalling and reinstalling both Unity and the Unity hub.

I did receive an error similar to the following when trying to launch Unity directly.

windows\system32\msvcp120.dll is either not designed to run on windows or it contains an error

Doing some digging online shows that it has to do with the Visual C++ Redistributable runtime package which can be downloaded here

Unity was back to working normal after installing that.
