For that one it could be as simple as to install the C++ runtime

Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and
2019 <>.

In any case, for windows my advice would be to forget about WinPython or
anything similar use python from with pip to install packages
and eventually installing VS2019 community edition C++ compiler if you
need to compile anything from source.

Best regards,
