Cannot download VSU_4\vcredist_x64.exe from https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30679# RRS feed

  • Question

  • Trying to download the file VSU_4\vcredist_x64.exe from Microsoft's website is failing. It seems to be timing out or the file is missing. I am using this web address https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=30679#. I tried on multiple computers but cannot download the file on any of them. Does anyone know how to get this file?

  • Hi Adam Hebein,

    Thanks for your post.

    I open the URL you offered and I can download the VSU_4\vcredist_x64.exe from this site successfully.

    Make sure your Internet is available and restart your machine and disable the anti-virus software and firewall then try it again.

    Or maybe you could try to change another network environment then download it again.

    Best Regards,

  • Tried again this morning on same machine and it is working. I suspect it was a temporary issue with Microsoft servers.

    Thanks for your help!
