    The information given in this article is very good. I want to know that where visual c++ 2017 is downloaded on the drives of laptop? Other downloaders for eg ‘Visual Studio 2019’ ask where to download. I searched all drives but could not find it. Thank You.

    I get this message when double clicking on a C++ executable built with VS 2008 (version 9): “The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail.”. It is a Windows 10 machine. The executable with associated files from VS was copied from another Windows 10 machine that probably had the VS 2008 on it. The Windows 10 machine on which this message appears has the 2010, 2013, AND 2017 Redistributables on it. Would the 2008 Redistributable correct this error if downloaded and if downloaded will it be usable on a Windows 10 machine? Should it be downloaded into the folder in which the executable resides? Thx.

      You will need to download and install VC++ 2008 version. Just copying the files will not work.

        I noticed on the download page for VC++ 2008 Redistributable that under System Requirements that Windows 10 OS is not listed as a supported operating system. Will the package still work on a Windows 10 machine?

          Yes, I can confirm that it’s installed and running on my Windows 10 Version 2004 system.

          Windows 10 is kind of build on top of the Windows 7, that means it will work anyways.

    Please Help! I am trying to install Sony Vegas Video 9 on Windows 7×64, but it keeps asking for the 2005 vcredist.msi file. I have downloaded it from the internet, but it keeps trying to download it from Microsoft’s website, and that file has been removed. Does anyone know where I can get the 2005 standalone offline installer in the .msi format (which doesn’t point to Microsoft’s website)?

    Thank you!

    Which error do you had? Typical error is you have more recent version.

    If you have 32 bit system, install just x86. If you have 64 bit system, install x86 and x64.

      I suggest you install 2015 and 2017 versions before 2019, even though 2019 replace the two previous. Good have all libraries, so try install 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015, 2017 and 2019 with links in post. Remember restart system every install. Note: SP means Service Pack, they are some updates in one install package.

    Thanks to this, I’m too lazy to backtrack Microsoft for VC++. Good thing you maintain this thread well.

    late reply. Use the x64 since you have 64-bit OS.
    .
    Only use x86 if you have 32-bit OS.

      @anon, remember x64 OS supports 32-bit and 64-bit applications, so you need install 32-bit and 64-bit Microsoft Visual C++ to support all applications platform. x86 OS just support 32-bit applications, so you can install just 32-bit applications.

    Late reply. Redistributables will never have final versions. You need to downloads the ones you need depending on your software. For me, I just download all whenever I could. You never know when you want to run an oldschool software and out of internet.

    Late reply, but let this be a lesson for you and other people. Redistributables doesn’t have to be the latest. Being indated or outdated doesn’t matter. Softwares will only use a certain redistributable when it was built/intended for use. Even up-to-date softwares that have been around for long and uses legacy (inherits the past versions for compatability) options may still use older redistributable.

    Remember:
    outdate != obsolete
    latest != always great

      That depends upon your requirement. If software requires a specific version of VC++ then you will need to keep that installed in your computer. In normal circumstances, we would install the latest one only.

      I recommend to keep it. If software requires a specific version, try install it.

      Yes, you can run the installer with /q switch. For example,
      C:\Users\Usman\Downloads\VC_redist.x64.exe /q

    After upgrading to 64 bit version of windows 10,I get this message everytime I launch a game 0xc000007b.I searched for 4 damn days for a solution and finally found the best solution here.Most of the websites don’t mention about downloading “BOTH 32 bit and 64 bit VERSIONS” OF Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable packages(ALL VERSIONS) ON A 64 bit system.But here I found it.Now the games are running fine.
    *Just Re-name the files before downloading to clear up confusions.

        Not all. Just the redistributable you need but you need to install 32-bit and 64-bit both versions according to WEI SHÉN.

    1. Only if you had given the version name and filesize on the page, we could have confirmed whether this is the version we are looking for, or we already have it.

    2. there are updates, like for 2005 there is SP1 and for 2010 there is SP1, but those are not mentioned above. please find out and tell whether the above download will suffice, or if updates are required, why don’t you consider listing them also for download
