Have you ever scrolled through the installed programs in your Windows PC, you probably wondered why there are so many installed packages by the name of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable? What exactly is this software and why are there so many of them installed in your computer?
Let me tell you what Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable is and why you might need it
What Is Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable?
Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable is a integrated development environment (IDE), which helps in writing C and C++ software applications. It's quite a handy tool to have and often quite essential to have if you are using softwares which rely on its core components. In fact, some software applications don't work properly if you dont have the right version of Visual C++ Redistributable installed. That's why often softwares come pre-packaged with their version of Redistributable, which gets installed along the given software.
MVSC was originally a distinctly separate project by Microsoft, but later became a part of Visual Studio and is now freely available for use. As I said, many applications require redistributables to function correctly. They are often independently installed of applications and several applications can make use of these libraries while only having to install it once.
Many video games are written in C++ language and they implement Microsoft core APIs provided by Visual C++ Redistributable. In a way, the game is reliant on C++ Redistributable and without it, a certain .dll file wil be missing. There have been many versions of C++ Redistributable over the years such as 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012 and 2017.
Because of many versions of C++ Redistributable and you don't always know which year version will fix your game problems. That's why we suggest that you install all versions of C++ Redistributable. This way, you will not have any problem with runtime or file missing errors such as following:
- msvcr100.dll is missing
- msvcr100.dll could not be located
- msvcp110.dll is missing
- msvcr110.dll is missing
- msvcpp110.dll is missing
Once you install all these packages of Microsoft C++ Redistributable, all your application runtime errors will be fixed and your game will run as smoothly as ever.
