I am getting the same error and I installed using MSI.
Downloaded the VC redist packages for x64 and it fixed the issue:
Strange that the error message has python.exe as it's title.
You probably "installed" from the zip package, which does not do any validation of the available prerequisites for MySQL Workbench. I strongly recommend to use the Windows Installer (or at least the msi) which check if the VC++ 2013 runtime is installed (which includes the mentioned DLL). The installer also allows for easy upgrades and helps you with the setup.
I had the same problem and I found the missing dll in C:\Windows\SysWOW64 folder. Just copy it to System32 and was fixed.
If you still have the @MikeW error with python.exe is because you have a 32bits version of one and the 64bits of the other (Python and Workbench).
