Unable to open pycharm64.exe

Hi, I have recently encountered problems using the exe file to open pycharm (64 bit, PyCharm Community 2020.2.1) . I tried following the steps provided on the fora here but to no avail. Please help. I've reinstalled 3-4 times, and reinstalled Java (Version 8 Update 261) on my machine (Windows 10 x64 bit Home, i5-1035G1 processor, 8GB RAM), but to no avail. Attached is my idea.log file for any further information: Upload id: 2020_09_02_KPPqV7yfgx7iDkJQ (file: idea.log)

I'm not sure of the procedure to make JetBrains uploads available here (will the ID do?), so here's a google drive link to the same file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1mMrhitCXEXRktoXJTvmVR8LEHWodti2m/view?usp=sharing

Cross-posting from support request:

The fact that you can start PyCharm using the batch file makes the issue similar to https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-236262

Could you try the solution suggested in the ticket description? Namely:

Install the latest Visual C++ Redistributable package from https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads (at the moment, the latest is the one for Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019).
