VcRedist is a PowerShell module for lifecycle management of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables. VcRedist downloads the supported (and unsupported) Redistributables, for local install, main image deployment or importing as applications into the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit or Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager. Supports passive and silent installs and uninstalls of the Visual C++ Redistributables.
Visual C++ Redistributables
The Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables are a core component of any Windows desktop deployment. Because multiple versions are often deployed they need to be imported into your deployment solution or installed locally, which can be time consuming. The aim of this module is to reduce the time required to import the Redistributables or install them locally.
