You can try to run this Microsoft solution.

Take backups first and create a system restore point.

Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem. --------------------------- OK --------------------------- Getting this error. even i can see MSVCR120.dl inside windows/system32 folder – Vivart Sep 8 '15 at 10:52
  • Bravo Microsoft. msvcr120.dll is part of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013 that you can download here. Click the Download button and check both vcredist_x*.exe and install first the x86 one and, then the x64 if it wasn't the right one (they don't conflict). – harrymc Sep 8 '15 at 14:03

I ever had the same issue but with different cumulative update, I suggest you to go to Program and Features to uninstall the previous update that has been installed by windows update before you get the (KB3081448). After that run windows update again, Hopefully it will restore the previous update state and reinstall the latest updates successfully.

  • A comment by Edgardo L. Juelar: Cuki is correct! since this update intends to replace the previous KB..144 but because of something in that KB..144, KB...148 cannot continue, find the KB...144 update and uninstall it so you can download the KB...148. This solved my problem on this...Hope yours too. good luck! – Hastur Sep 3 '15 at 13:12
