Microsoft Visual C++



The majority of games and programs require Microsoft Visual C++ installed - without this package the applications simply will not start. At the same time, users will see numerous errors, one way or another related to MSVC, the most common of which is runtime library error .

Usually, when installing Microsoft Visual C++ applications, the redistributable package is installed automatically, but some errors may occur during the installation process. In most cases, this is due to the use of counterfeit software or virus attacks.

Types of packages

There are several versions of the product, including those for different architectures. Like most applications, Microsoft Visual C++ is released for 32/64bit systems, and it is recommended to use a fully compatible package to avoid possible errors during operation. Both 32-bit (x86) and 64-bit (x64) versions can be installed on x64 OS, and in most cases, both packages are required to run games on such systems.

You can download Microsoft Visual C for free for Windows XP ,  7 ,  8, 8.1,10 and fix the errors yourself. The software environment does not take up much space on your hard drive, and installing several versions on one OS is quite common. This is explained by the fact that old games and programs can only work correctly under the old version of the product, while new ones, on the contrary, require updated libraries.
