Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Download – These libraries are required by many applications

Integrate C++ components with your system. Automatically install, update, and validate the Visual C++ Libraries for developing, running, and otherwise controlling or maintaining programs, environments, and structures built on CRT, Standard C++, ATL, MFC, OpenMP, and MSDIA.

The Visual C++ Redistributable installs Microsoft C and C++ (MSVC) runtime libraries. These libraries are required by many applications built by using Microsoft C and C++ tools. If your app uses those libraries, a Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable package must be installed on the target system before you install your app. The Redistributable package architecture must match your app’s target architecture. The Redistributable version must be at least as recent as the MSVC build toolset used to build your app. We recommend you use the latest Redistributable available for your version of Visual Studio, with some exceptions noted below.
