It looks like the Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable did not install properly. I know Apache 2.4.20 was built with Update 2. I do not know which redistributable was shipped in the Xampp installer. I'm assuming it is update 2 as well.
I ran into this problem on a fresh install of Windows Server 2012 R2. When I tried to install Update 1, it failed. I was able to get the server up to Update 1 only after I installed the first redistributable at which point I was then able to install the Update 1, and Update 2 a few months later. I'm going to suggest you be prepared to do this. However, try to install just Update 2 first, if it fails do as I did and start with the first one.
Note: you only need the 32bit ones (x86). They both have the same filenames so remember to add a 2 or something in the filename of Update 2 so you know which is which.
