Windows – Missing a Visual Studio 2010 file in Windows 8.1

visual studio 2010windows 8.1

I upgraded to Windows 8.1 this morning. When I started Visual Studio 2010, I got the following error message right after the splash appeared:

The file C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\Microsoft.Vsa.tlb could not be loaded. An attempt to repair this condition failed because the file could not be found.
Please reinstall this program.

Once I dismiss the error, Visual Studio loads up. Everything seems to be running ok, but everything I'm working on is using Framework versions 3.5 and greater. Should I be worried?

Use "Turn Windows features on or off" to install .NET 3.5 (includes 2.0 and 3.0).
