I have released a Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Mega Pack (MVCRP) for the convenience of quickly installing all the Visual C++ Redistributable Runtime libraries in one go without silly downloading of each package and then installing one by one. MVCRP delivers ALL current Visual C++ Runtime libraries in a single package that gets installed in a sequence one by one. I’ve decided to still let users click things in them opposed to running them in Silent mode, but it’s still WAY faster than doing everything manually.
Programs often fail to work because of missing Visual C++ Runtime libraries, even more so without any error messages. Programs or games simply don’t run or they crash in a second or two after start… You can only see the real reason for these problems within Event Viewer which 99% of people never look at. By installing all C++ runtime libraries, you’ll most likely solve large majority of such issues.
For Windows 32bit editions, you only need to install x86 versions. For Windows 64bit, it’s recommended to install both, x86 and x64 versions. Perform Windows Update after installation of all packages in order to fully update them.
If redistributable downloads never start, try downloading them with Internet Explorer.
Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Mega Pack (RMP)
Contains all the Visual C++ Redistributable Runtime packages in a single easy to use installer that takes under a minute to install. Contains both, 32bit and 64bit libraries. You might get errors for 64bit packages under 32bit Windows. Just skip them over.
