  • Hi Toniodelyon,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    According to your description,

    >> I have this message when installing some programs on W10.

    ## I have something to confirm with you. Could you tell me what you want to install? Or for “some programs”, what does it refer to? If possible, please provide us with more steps or screenshots so that we can reproduce the issue.

    In addition, if you want to install the Visual Studio, I suggest you could re-download it from here and try to install VS again.

    And before you install Visual Studio, please make sure that you have finished the steps below firstly:

    #1. Turn off your anti-virus  software during installation.

    #2. Try to update your windows to latest version

    #3. Complete or dismiss Windows Update before installation, and don’t forget to turn it on later.

    #4. Clean your %temp% folder, then, run the setup with Administrator privilege.

    BTW, If the issue persists, I need your help to collect the installation log. Please download and run this collect.exe tool, go to %temp% folder and find the vslogs.zip file, upload it to https://onedrive.live.com/ and share the link in here. Please clean up the personal information like Cookies and Password before you share your log.

    Hope all above will help you and any feedback will be expected.

    Best Regards,

    Anna

  • Hi Toniondelyon,

    Sorry to bother you.

    Did you meet this issue during visual studio installation? If so, you could download and run MicrosoftProgram_Install_and_Uninstall tool, which will help you automatically repair issues when you're blocked from installing or removing programs.

    Then re-run visual studio installer as administrator to install visual studio.

    Hope it could help you, and Any feedback will be expected.

    Best Regards,

    Dylan

  • Hi Toniodelyon,

    Did you have any update?

    Not sure which kind of Visual Studio do you use, and according to this similar issue: Missing vc_runtimeminimum_x86.msi and installation won’t work, we suggest you could uninstall the Visual C++ 20XX Redistribute items in Control Panel first and then like Dylan said, run the troubleshooting tool then rerun the VS installer as administrator and click “Repair” to repair VS.

    BTW, Below is the link of Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio and if you need you could download and have a try.

    Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019.(x86)

    And for more detailed information, you could refer to this document The latest supported Visual C++ downloads.

    Hope this could help you.

    Best Regards,

    Tianyu
