Microsoft visual c++ runtime library error

Hello community,

I've got a problem with installing the drivers on my new computer with fresh Windows 10 assembled. The only driver that can be installed is Nvidia graphics.

I am leaving the computer specification in case it's needed:
Motherboard - z370 GAMING PLUS
Procesor - intel core i5-8600k
Graphics - nvidia Geforce gtx 1060
Rams - goodram 2x8gb 2400mhz
Disc SSD - adata-su800 256gb
Disc HDD - seagate barracuda 1tb
Power - silentiumpc vero L2 600W

And that's the problem that I am occurring:

Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library

Assertion failed!

File: Src\NCSRuleReader.cpp
Line: 97

Expression: 0 != pTreeFile

For information on how your program can cause an assertion failure, see the Visual C++ documentation on asserts

(Press Retry to debug the application - JIT must be enabled)

Hope that anybody can give me a tip to just pass this issue, thanks.

Only the maker of the driver that writes the file AppData\Local\Temp\IntAF3F.tmp\Rule.dll as part of its install can correct this. Ask them.

Where did you get this driver from? I've never seen such an error after downloading drivers from the makers site. Maybe you used some obscure driver update program or site? Not a good idea.

If it already is a driver from a known and trusted source, try it in Safe Mode.

All drivers that I tried to install were either from MSI motherboard CD or from MSI site, so they are officially approved.
I tried also in Safe Mode, but I can't open the CD autorun (I mean I can browse it, but can't open any file on disc) due to being in Safe Mode it says. Also installing drivers from MSI site can't happen there due to being in Sage Mode. (Got that error to switch to normal mode).

Can it be a problem with a BIOS configuration (can reset help)? But all the components are new so if so that's quite shocking.

Even in Safe Mode, you should be able to run the program that's mentioned in the autorun.inf. Have a look at the contents of that file using Notepad,. Then run the program from File Explorer.

Safe Mode

In reply to: Re: Safe Mode

When I try to run autorun in Safe Mode the window occurs "Load Driver Failed!".
Can't also install it manually, it says I have to switch to normal mode.
Well I have never met a problem with installing drivers especially on new PC.
Is that any possible way that motherboard is failed programmed or that's an issue with BIOS?
Got two different hard drives so I tried to install Windows on both with the same result.
