    Hey, guys! I just have a quick question. I have installed many games recently and most all of them have some version of the Visual C++ Redistributable Packages included. So, if I were to download all of the packages (2005, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013) and install them prior to installing any games... could I bypass that when I install my games?

    Thanks in advance! :)

    Hey, thanks! That article definitely sums it up nicely! I think I'll just let the game installers do their thing. ;-)
