I couldn’t install Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio. What do I do?

FAQ Installation Installer


There have been reports of the Visual C++ Redistributable failing to install during the installation of Aximmetry, such as this:

During the installation of Aximmetry there are certain prerequisites, among them these:

Visual C++ Resitributable for Visual Studio 2012 Update 4

Visual C++ Resitributable for Visual Studio 2013

Visual C++ Resitributable for Visual Studio 2017

By failing to install any of them, the Aximmetry installer will cancel the installation. Therefore you have to manually install the Visual C++ Reditributable first. Only when the redistributable is successfully installed should you attempt to install Aximmetry again.

If your installation runs into problems with any of the above mentioned redistributables, please visit the official Microsoft website to download the appropriate version (2012, 2013, 2017).
If you still can not install the redistributable, you need to contact your IT department or Microsoft directly.
