What Is Microsoft Vc Redist Package [EXCLUSIVE]

Same problem for me, cant install some needed programs because the installations will end when trying to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable (x86). I have tried several things , uninstalling all the Visual C++ redistributables and install again , but 2008 X86 wont install. I also re-install windows some weeks ago and got the same. this comes with installation packages from Autodesk and Citect SCADA

What Is Microsoft Vc Redist Package

When you install an updated redistributable package, binaries for non-target architectures are removed. For example, after you install an update for an x86-based application, the x64 Visual C++ 2013 runtime libraries are missing. This fix makes sure that both versions of the Visual C++ redistributable are visible when you add or remove programs after installation of the update.

Other redistributables came along with specific programs that need those packages to be able to carry out their functions on your Windows-based device. Most often, such redistributables are downloaded from Microsoft during the installation of some program. In some cases, they come bundled with the installer of the app you wish to use.

Another point is that Microsoft regularly delivers the updates of the redistributables in question without uniting them into larger packages, which results in many versions of Visual C++ Redistributable residing on your PC.

The problem is, it might be quite difficult to figure out how many pieces of software rely on a certain redistributable, so the elimination of some package may bring about issues with multiple apps. This is likely to result in a total mess as a lot of programs may start to play up at once. What is more, your operating system itself may go haywire. To sum up, it is a bad idea to delete Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for no good reason.

Many applications require redistributable Visual C++ runtime library packages to function correctly. These packages are frequently installed separately from the applications they support, enabling multiple applications to use the package with only a single installation. These Visual C++ redistributable and runtime packages are mostly installed for standard libraries that many applications use.[3]

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Step 2. Again, open the Run box, and then type msiexec /regserver and hit Enter. This command will re-register the Windows Installer service without showing anything too. After that, you can try installing the Visual 2015 redist package again.

2. Uninstall all of the Microsoft Visual C++ redistributables that you have installed.Once it's done install the Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable packages from the link below starting from the oldest ones (skip the "arm" files). Launch all the executables as Administrator.

"If it's C++ 2015-2019, uninstall it through the Windows Settings / Control Panel (I had 2 versions, so uninstall every 2015-2019 package), then restart your PC. After that, go to the SWTOR folder. If you are using Steam, it should be Steam\steamapps\common\Star Wars - The Old Republic. You should find a file named VC_redist.x86.exe, run it and install it. Then restart your PC again.

I'm guessing that both versions of the launcher (Steam and non-Steam) do it, but that the non-Steam launcher already has UAC privileges (when you run it), so the redist package inherits them and doesn't put up a UAC prompt of its own. It probably happens during one of the two passes that the yellow bar makes.

There is an issue with some versions the 2017 redistributable that block proper installation of the 2015 and 2015-2019 packages. That would fit the issue: Swtor tries to install the newer version, but that fails. The game still runs because the dll files are there, but the next time Swtor starts it tries to install again.

You could try uninstalling all VC++ redistributables with a year higher than 2013 and install the latest 2015-2019 runtime package from here: -us/topic/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads-2647da03-1eea-4433-9aff-95f26a218cc0

As for whether you can remove them in general, that is hard to say. That depends on what applications you have and whether they need those redistributables. It is a fairly safe practice to remove them, see whether that presents a problem, and put them back.

Microsoft changed the system significantly with the release of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019. A baseline image is provided for these redistributable packages so that it is no longer necessary to install different versions separately on target systems.

In other words: if the Visual C++ 2019 redistributable is installed on a system, it is no longer necessary to install the Visual C++ 2015 or 2017 redistributable packages as these are supported automatically as well.

To work around this issue, remove orphaned Windows Installer packages and free additional disk space to meet the recommended minimum requirements to install SP1 depending on which applications you have installed, as documented on the download page for each patch package. You may need to install the VC redistributable package from a machine where SP1 successfully installed if you see an error like 25007 above when attempting to reinstall SP1. Read on for details.
