KeePassXC won’t run after the latest update (on Windows)

I’ve had a problem with the KeePassXC password manager refusing to run/start after its latest update (for Windows). The solution was to install the newest Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable package.

The package can be downloaded from this page:
https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/cpp/windows/latest-supported-vc-redist?view=msvc-170#latest-microsoft-visual-c-redistributable-version

The direct download link for the 64-bit Windows:
https://aka.ms/vs/17/release/vc_redist.x64.exe

After I’ve installed that, KeePassXC worked with no problems.
