You need "The Visual C++ Redistributable Packages"

Here you go:  https://www.microsoft.com/en-US/download/details.aspx?id=40784
Make sure to download from the link --> vcredist_x64.exe & vcredist_x86.exe

Alternatively, there's a folder 'Installer' in your Sims 4 installation path and opening them, you will find two folders for the above as well.

Problem solved; Topic closed.
