Looks like you have a prerelease version of the CRT on your machine. Try finding and installing the latest Visual C++ 2017 Redistributables from Microsoft.

A newer version would have been installed by Python but since it wasn't I assume you have some other program on your PATH that has included a (not quite) private copy of ucrtbase.dll. If you can find and update or uninstall that program, and then reinstall Python it should resolve it.
