VS2015 runtime installation problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • The visual studio 2015 runtime fails to install (the ucrt dependency), I think because of this parenting issue? 

    Info                  CBS    Appl: detect Parent, Package: Package_for_KB2999226~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~6.1.1.5, Parent: Microsoft-Windows-Client-Features-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~6.1.7601.17514, Disposition = Detect, VersionComp: EQ, ServiceComp: GE, BuildComp: EQ, DistributionComp: GE, RevisionComp: GE, Exist: present

    How do I go about getting this installed?

  • Is this for WES7 or Windows in general? You might want to post to the Visual Studio forum: https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/home?forum=vssetup&filter=alltypes&sort=lastpostdesc

  • Specifically for WES7. (x86 or x64).

    1. Is this a full image with all the packages installed?
    2. Or did you custom build the image to be a smaller image?
    3. Do earlier VS runtimes install?

  • Originally it was a smaller image, but in trying to determine the issue, I have tried a full image, but still no luck.

    Earlier runtimes do install- the vs2013/2012/2010/2008 runtimes all do install.

    The problem with the vs2015 runtime is that it tries to install the dependency package KB2999226, but that fails.  KB2999226 is the universal c runtime dependency, which is new for vs2015.

    I also just tried installing it on a stock WES8 (created using the bootable IBW), and when installing the vs2015 runtime, the windows update standalone installer bombs out while installing Windows8-RT-KB2999226 msu, with the error "The update is not applicable to your computer"
