Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015

If my 2012 R2 server has Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable (x86) - 14.0.2.4212 and Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable (x64) - 14.27.29016 listed in Programs and Features, do I need to install Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 that is required by an application upgrade?

Hi @ChongBryanKCIVUSARMYRCCPUSA-3436 ,

Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

If you have the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable (x86) - 14.0.24212 installed on your computer, the Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 (x86) - 14.0.23026 can’t be installed side-by-side.

Sincerely,
Anna

Anna,

Please correct me if I'm wrong. Even though I have Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable (x86) - 14.0.2.4212 and Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable (x64) - 14.27.29016, I still need to install Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 as required by a server application upgrade. However, to do this I need to delete Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable (x86) - 14.0.24212 first?

Thank you,
Bryan

Hi Bryan, as you said, I suppose you can temporarily uninstall the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable (x86) - 14.0.24212 by using Add/Remove Programs on the Control Panel. Then, install the Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015 (x86) - 14.0.23026.
