Android Studio Setup Error

When I unzipped the Android Studio files everything seemed to come through fine but when I went to open the application it came up with a system error. The error states the program can't start because MSVCR90.dll is missing from this computer. Any help would be much appreciated

Search for "ms visual c++ redistributable" and make sure you download in straight from Microsoft. Install it. It should have the file you need. (If not is possible it's looking for one of the older versions of the library. They're designated by year.)
