  • Hi kirkt,

    Thank you for posting in MSDN forum.

    Before helping your solve this issue, there are some clarifications with you:

    This thread title is about the VS 2015 install extensions, but the initial post is about VC++ redistributable loading.

    1.Do you mean that you would like to open the project but failed because of the VC++ redistributable?

    If yes, please tell us  the detailed information about your project type, your VS edition, and the error message about failing loading the redistributable package.

    2.>>File verification fails

    How about pasting this original error message to us, it might be related to the project file authorizations and privileges issue.

    Currently, we are not clear which  VC++ redistributable you have already installed on your machine,

    please go to control panel to check and repair them to narrow down some potential problems, because it's a runtime for many software and application running.

    Best Regards,
