Yeah, some are having this issue. Here's the reply I got from Soji on Skype about it.

"Hi Calum, Thank you for the error report! Looks like it is another Microsoft's crap (they just did away with whole point of DLL). Probably installing Visual C++ 2012 redistributable, which is available from Microsoft.com would remove the error. But, another workaround is not using the installer. You can rename setup.exe to something.7z and use 7Zip to extract all the files."

If you have 7zip installed, you don't even need to rename it. Just right click the setup icon, go to the 7zip menu, and extract it as if it was a .zip file. At least it worked for me.

For Windows users, if they don't have 7zip, here's an extracted version of YS: https://www.mediafire.com/?6464oa8osga6o1e (Windows only)
