Error code 0x000013EC on installation of Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi:

      Install Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable but fail with this error:

    1. A newer version of Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable has been detected on the machine.

    [9/20/2019, 13:4:22] Global Block Checks: StopBlockers evaluated to true.

    [9/20/2019, 13:4:22]Final Result: Installation failed with error code: (0x000013EC), "A StopBlock was hit or a System Requirement was not met." (Elapsed time: 0 00:00:03).

      Does that error code 0x000013EC always mean "there is a newer version has been detected on the machine", or that error code 0x000013EC can also mean another error?

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    No, the error code needs to be judged according to the specific situation.

    >>A newer version of Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable has been detected on the machine.

    It is most likely a matter of compatibility. So you problem is that Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable cannot be installed because a new version is already detected.

    Please check your Control Panel->Programs->Uninstall or change a program and View installed updates. You may find you have already installed a later version of that Visual C++ 2010 Redistribution package. Then try to remove any exist Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable then see the result. Maybe after the uninstall you will be able to install your package again.

    Best regards,

    Eden
