How do I resolve error about missing database drivers when logging into xTuple?

If you get the following message (or similar) when logging into xTuple, it probably means you are on a Windows machine and are missing the latest Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for your installation (x64 or x86). Here's the error message:

A connection could not be established with the specified Database as the Proper Database Drivers have not been installed.

You can find and download the driver for your installation by visiting the Microsoft support site.
