MicrosoftProgram_Install_and_Uninstall deployment on multiple machines RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We are currently facing issues with around 1500 Windows 10 systems that seem to have vcredist 2013 x64 corrupted and apps that use this component fail to install due to the below error.

    Product: Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 x64 Minimum Runtime - 12.0.21005 -- A later version of Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 x64 Minimum Runtime -12.0.21005 is already installed.

    Is there a possibility to use MicrosoftProgram_Install_and_Uninstall and deploy a script for it to remove just Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 x64 Minimum Runtime?

    We have tried force uninstalling with the installation setup of vcredist via cmd, but that does not work.

    Thank you!

  • Hi,
    You can download Windows Installer CleanUp Utility which helps Windows-based computers clean up installed programs that would either refuse or pretend not to remove themselves from the "add/remove programs" feature in Microsoft Windows.

    Figured out how to use it with command line.
