Windows 10 Update – Visual C++ Install Loop
Seems we have some users reporting that their Windows 10 install continuously attempts to install Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package. This of course results in an update loop, but luckily it’s an easy fix.
- Right click your windows key (start menu) and choose Programs & Features
- Once the Programs & Features windows has opened up click the “publisher” tab to arrange by publisher.
- Scroll until you find Microsoft Corporation
- Located all of your Microsoft Visual C++ installs and right click, then uninstall.
- Repeat this process until all instances have been removed.
- Reset your machine
- Once you’re booted back up, login to Windows 10 and open the action center. (The icon looks like a small text bubble, generally located next to the system time/clock)
- Click All Settings > Update & Security > Check For Updates
Windows 10 will scan your machine and note the missing Visual C++ redistribution packages and will install them successfully. This time, without the update loop. Simple!
