Report misleading

Visual C Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio is an installer program that installs run-time components needed to run applications that are made with Visual Studio. There isn't much to tell with this program, and it's a simple tool that helps keep the user's system up to date when it comes to Visual Studio programs. If you've ever installed a new software like a video game, media program, or application, chances are you've got a run time error. This run time error seems like gibberish, but if you pay close attention, it will say something like Visual C++ run error. This error is due to missing components from the program you are trying to run. That is where Visual C Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio comes into play.


  • Free to use
  • Run all apps made with Visual Studios
  • Supports 8 different languages
  • Small download
  • No technical knowledge required.

As technical as the program sounds, there is no technical knowledge needed. In fact, after you download the program and hit install, it does all of the technical work for you. To be honest, I don't even consider Visual C Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio, an actual program. I literally consider it a software update because that is effectively what it's doing. Upgrading software so that certain applications can run. Now keep in mind, there are some programs that will run despite not having Visual C Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio. However, you should know that those programs might not run properly. A prime example is when one of my games will suddenly crash after about five minutes of play. I'd get the run time error each and every time.

Run any application that is made by Visual Studio

After doing a bit of research, I found that my computer was missing vital components to run these programs properly. Once I downloaded Visual C Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio, I haven't had a problem since. The install is incredibly small, considering all that it does. It's less than 7MB and downloads in less than three minutes. If you have a fast connection, you'll have it in about a minute. The great thing is that this program doesn't cost anything; you can download it for free at just about any reputable download website and enjoy the benefits instantly. I'd say 99% of internet users will need this program. Whether we know it or not, all of us probably use an application or program that was made by Visual Studios. I'd recommend it to everyone.
