If you start a program and receive an error stating that the program you are trying to run needs the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Runtime, you can use this tutorial to install the package so that your program works again.
When developers create a Windows program using Microsoft Visual Studio 2015, there are specific dynamic link libraries (DLLs) that their programs are linked to work correctly.
These DLLs are distributed through the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Runtime, and if the package is not installed, users will encounter errors stating that DLLs are missing or you need to install the runtime.
As an example, the video game Valorant released an update today that did not include the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Runtime, causing the game not to work after the update was installed.
When users launch Valorant, they are instead greeted with the following error.
"The following component(s) are required to run this program: Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Runtime"
The good news is that it is really easy to fix this problem by downloading and install the runtime from Microsoft's website.
To install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Runtime, please follow these steps:
If you already had the Visual C++ 2015 Runtime installed, you can run the above redistributables and perform a repair.
You can now try to run the program that previously gave the missing runtime error, and it should work again.
