Why is there a Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable 2 software on my Windows XP computer?
Dear Sir or Madam:
After I installed a new PDF converter software, I noticed that another Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Software has been added to section Add / Remove Programs of my Windows XP Home Edition with Service Pack 3 desktop computer when I was browsing all installed programs in the Add / Remove programs.
The first is Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable, version: 8.0.56336 4,61 MB.
The second is Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable, version: 8.0.61001, 5.28 MB.
Do I have to keep the two of them?
What should I do?
Please reply back soon.

I use Windows 7 Professional. I tried to install Guitar Pro 6 on my PC. This software needs Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable to run. But this facility gives following error.Error 1935. An error occurred during the installation of the assembly. "Microsoft.VC80.MFC.type = 'win32' ='8.0.50727.4053 .version ', publickeyToken =' 1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b", processorArchitecture = "x 86".After this error, Windows update is also not working.
given that every piece of software that you install using a version of this dll or package c ++, it is it corrupted or missing or maybe messed up in the registry.
Save yourself time... format and reinstall. It will cost a few hours, but save the headaches in the long run.
However, you can always go on the Technet forums and post there.
I am running Windows 7 (32 bit).
I believe that the source of my problem was the following: I tried to install an old TV tuner (MyGica HDTV Thriller X8000A) on my computer. I found the installation CD and ran it.
Installation has failed, but the attempt has left behind Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable (v 8.0.6100). I think that maybe this is the version XP from Visual C++ 2005, because he's screwing things upward. Now many programs and devices do not work on my computer.
I tried to uninstall, but I get the error:
The feature you are trying to use is on a network unavailable resource.
Click OK to try again or enter a different path to the folder containing the installation package 'vcredist.msi' in the box below.
(Indeed, there no such file in C:\Windows\Temp\.) It is followed by:
The installation source for this product is not available. Verify that the source exists and that you can access.
I also tried the system restore, which fails with an "unspecified" error (0x80070005).
I'm really stuck. My computer does not work right and I would hate to have to go through a system/software full reinstall to fix this.
How can I get rid of Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable (v 8.0.6100)?

I have Windows XP and just upgraded my Zone Alarm Internet Security Suite to the new version. The parental control available in it says they are available but not installed. I click on install and a window will appear titled Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable and says the component you are trying to use is on a network unavailable resource. I need help to understand this.
I suggest that you download the latest version of the Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime manually and check to see if it helps.

I have Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit, Service pack 2 installed on my machine.
I was informed by a software vendor to install the Microsoft Visual C++ (x 86) redistributable package.
However I have recently installed Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable package (x 64) installed.
I wonder if the packages can be installed on the same machine and coexist (and work correctly) without problems of conflict.
Installation of Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable package (x 86) is not in conflictwith Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable package (x 64).
Hope that helps.

If you're referring to multiple instances of Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 ( 2008 or 2010) Redistributable listed in programs and features, do not delete one of them.

Hey when I try to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable or vcredist_x86.exe he can't find the track of appdata\Local\Temp\IX000. TMP\vcredist.msi.
When I have the error upwards, and find the folder, the vcredist.msi is in the IX001 file. TMP instead, so I try to change the location of the folder, but it won't always find the track, I installed the vcredist_x64.exe without problem but I need the x 86 version of a program, I tried to install for the last 3 days.
Have searched on google and got nowhere, this is really frustrating and comes here for help.
When I close the errors I get error 1714. The old version of Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable cannot be deleted.
Take suggestions, just to keep it simple because im not computer smart.
Looks like a problem with Windows Installer.
Because the Windows Installer Cleanup utility is not supported any more try the following utility:
(Windows 7 64-bit)
This can be long and winded, but I spent 5 hours trying to solve this problem.
It all started when I tried to uninstall a program, but I kept getting the message that wanted me vcredit.msi (or something like that) I downloaded a copy of it and pointed out the program of this file, but it has always found a problem and wouldn't uninstall. (Add/Remove programs won't uninstall it not more)
So, I moved to the installation of a new program. He repeats to me '\Temp\IXP1. TMP\ is not a valid package for the product Microsoft Visual C ++ 2005
Redistributable. Try to find the installation package 'vcredit.msi' in a folder that you can install Microsoft Visual C ++ 2005 Redistributable. »
When I point to the vcredit.msi that I downloaded (just randomly sitting in my docs) I get "error 1714. The old version of Microsoft Visual C ++ 2005 Redistributable cannot be deleted. Contact your technical support group. »
I also have trouble downloading updates Microsoft for Microsoft Visual C ++ 2005 Redistributable & at the same time in updates it shows Microsoft Visual C ++ 2008 Redistributable.
I tried to uninstall Microsoft Visual C ++ 2005 Redistributable via Add/Remove Programs, but it won't let me say it does not find some programs.
This thing is annoys the heck out of me.
I need to set the Microsoft Visual C ++ 2005 Redistributable problem (looks like I need the new version 2008 or 2010?) and be able to install and uninstall programs. Which is somehow related.
Any ideas what to do. (Please speak as clearly as possible. I'm a fool when it comes to computers lol)

Thanks for posting your query in Microsoft Community Forum.
The error you get can be caused by components from Visual C++ Runtime libraries that are missing or get conflicted, perhaps due to a third party software or badly configured registry settings.
So, I would suggest trying the following steps and check if the problem persists:
a. click Start, right-click computerand then click Properties.
b. in the name computer, domain, and workgroup settings , click change settings.
(If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password, or click continue.)
c. click change settings , and then select the Advanced tab click the environment variables button.
d. the user variables area, click on TEMPand then click change.
e. in the Variable value box, type C:\Temp, and then click OK twice.
f. click applyand then click OK.
g. follow steps 4 to 6 for the variable of environment TMP as well.
h. confirm this folder C:\Temp exist, otherwise create a.
i. restart the computer.
j. attempt to install the application again.
If the steps do not help, try the next method.

I have Windows XP SP3 installed on my laptop. Have tried to install Trend Micro Titanium Internet Security again with installation is not due to an error. The error code is 0, 1004, 0 x 000, which refers to Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable. Trend Micro recommendation is to remove Visual C++ via Add/Remove Programs, but when I try to do it won't allow me because "the source disk is not available. I guess the thinking is that the Visual C++ file is corrupted somehow and needs to be reinstalled, but if I can't get rid of the old, used to install a new. Help! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, struggled to install a piece of software recently, and developer said that I needed to install Microsoft visual c ++ 2008 redistributable. All other c ++ on my win 7 64 bit machine are 64-bit and earlier is 2008. Before I naively followed his advice, I need to know if it is OK to do. Thank you, Jay
You can install any version of the redistributable C++ as needed as long as you install
them to Microsoft. They are not included, so you may need more of a version.
64-bit systems may need both x 86 and 64-bit according to programs
they are running. X 86 systems is not necessary or can install the 64-bit versions.
C++ redistributable files
I hope this helps.
