Acquia Dev Desktop 2 Cannot load libmysql.dll

There is a problem with Acquia Dev Desktop 2 that seems to happen quite so often.

After installation, Acquia Dev Desktop 2 cannot start and produces the error message
“Cannot load dll: C:\Program Files (x86)\DevDesktop\mysql\lib\libmysql.dll”.

This occurs even though the aforementioned file does exist in the location mentioned. It happens both on 64bit Windows 7 and 10 and various hardware configurations.
