`msdia80.dll` is installed in the root folders of two drives

I have 2 HD partitions as C: and D:, and msdia80.dll is present in the root folders of both drives. I have read the article by Microsoft about this issue, but there is no VC folder in my PC under C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\. How can I solve this problem?

I tried to install "Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x64)" as Microsoft suggested but right after I confirmed the license agreement, the installer disappeared and nothing happened. I tried this a few times after restarting PC but to no avail. Then I uninstalled the package together with its updates and installed version 2008 (Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x64)). Now msdia80.dll is gone from the root and msdia90.dll is present in the right directory, namely C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VC.
