Sometimes, when installing a very recent game, it may not work. Most games usually include several additional installation packages, but sometimes they don't. When you download them from gaming platforms such as Steam, these redistributables are usually automatically installed on your computer.
With Visual C++, developers can use code already developed by Microsoft to perform specific tasks, so they don't have to write the code themselves from scratch.
If you've had Windows installed on your computer for several years, you will likely see redistributables installed from different years and versions, such as 2010, 2013, 2015, and 2022. This is because there are programs designed to work with a specific version of these libraries. Here at Uptodown, we offer downloads for the latest available versions for both 32- and 64-bit, taking into account that many are no longer supported.
