Legion Patch Launcher broken

Tried to log on after the most recent launcher patch/upgrade on July 26, 2016.  Once the new launcher updated and restarted it did not restart.  After multiple attempts including rebooting my computer, I am not able to launch the launcher.  I'm only able to play by launching the game directly from the wow bottle.  Does anyone have a fix for this?  It appears Bliz has broken the launcher for us crossover users with this most recent update.  Is there a way to download and install any future patches with the launcher broken?

You can install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 (14.0) Redistributable Runtime component into your current WoW bottle and it should get the Battlenet launcher back and running.
