Windows 10 Update – Visual C++ Install Loop

 In Articles

Hey Folks,

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.

Here’s How: 

  1. Right click your windows key (start menu) and choose Programs & Features
  2. Once the Programs & Features windows has opened up click the “publisher” tab to arrange by publisher.
  3. Scroll until you find Microsoft Corporation
  4. Located all of your Microsoft Visual C++ installs and right click, then uninstall.

    MS C

  5. Repeat this process until all instances have been removed.
  6. Reset your machine
  7. 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)
  8. 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!
