    I heard it is not good to remove other versions of redistributable. Is this true? If I do so, will it resolve the issue?

  • Hi mushroom_kar,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.

    Please don't worry about it, the screenshot is just a warning, which informs you that there is more advanced Visual C++ redistributables version is installed, that the 14.0.24210 version couldn't install additionally, and it doesn't affect your VS running properly.

    >>I heard it is not good to remove other versions of redistributable. Is this true?

    The function of redists is to run such applications on a computer even if it does not have Visual Studio 2015 installed. These packages install run-time components of these libraries: C Runtime (CRT), Standard C++, MFC, C++ AMP, and OpenMP. 

    If you have any doubt about if there is any files broken, You may go the Control Panel to check which version VC++ Redist are installed, take my machine as an example, choose one and right click>Change>Repair, to repair them all:
