Trouble with Microsoft visual C++ 2013 & 2015

Recommended Posts

I'v tried troubleshooting this problem for the past four hours. Before posting this thread i was sure to try many solutions posted on this forum and have had plenty of trouble and no success.

I am currently running Windows 8 (not 8.1).

Here is what i have tried:

1.

Installing all windows updates.

Uninstalling squad.

Installed Microsoft visual C++ 2013 (64 bit) & 2015 (64 bit) off of the Microsoft website.

Reinstalled squad.

Restarted computer.

Attempted to launch game.

Same error.

 

2.

Uninstalled Microsoft visual C++ 2013 (64 bit) & 2015 (64 bit)

Scanned my computer using CMD as an admin

Entered command "sfc /scannow"

Went to https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=41076 installed the updates.

Same error.

 

These solutions I found here: http://forums.joinsquad.com/topic/8564-two-solutions-for-c-error/

There seems to be another solution in a quote on his thread to a script but i'm unable to open his/her link.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

the link your refering to is in my signature,
although the script only attempts to install VC 2013 and 2015 silently,

what error are you actually getting?

Thanks for the response, here are the errors I seem to continually get.

it looks like your missing pre-requisites,
have you run 100% of all optional updates for windows?
I have seen people say they have run all updates but they never went in and selected all the optional updates manually. (which you need for c++)

I have seen people say they have run all updates but they never went in and selected all the optional updates manually. (which you need for c++)

It seems that i didn't get all the updates because i didn't check for more after i updated manually once. I'v been installing them and after installation i check for more updates and more keep pouring out. Even if this doesn't fix my errors in the game these updates will most likely help my PC so thanks for making me revisit that :)

I hate to keep nagging you, but have you 100% done all available updates still?
After you installed the C++ 2013 you would of had even more updates to keep doing.

in some cases you may be required to run updates, reboot to install, then check for more updates 7 or 8 times.
I won't stop nagging you until it says there are no more available updates / windows is up to date ;)

My PC needs to go into maintenance mode before i can do any more updates but yes yes you are right. And no i don't feel nagged at all, I really appreciate the help you are giving me :)

So now i'm getting a few new problems, these ones truly puzzle me though. It seems i'm getting a new error for Microsoft visual 2015, and I am unable to update further because i have one update that i have installed multiple times but keeps showing up whenever i scan for more updates.

try rebooting in safe mode
(usually you press F8 during initial boot/post)

alternatively you can open your start menu, type msconfig press enter
go to the boot tab
then check off safe boot (also check off the network radio button)

then try installing again,
this should prevent some other process from hijacking it.

When i do this i seem to be unable to access any updates at all, i can only uninstall updates but that specific one is not listed.

I meant for you to try this for installing C++

the update in question you are having issues with is just the update the check compatibility for windows 10. (Won't affect c++)

Sorry for the misunderstanding, and i do owe you a beer after all this haha.

I'm attempting to install these updates and i noticed they are taking some time in safe mode without any progress. I opened up the task manager to see if they are even doing anything to find that they are using 0% of the cpu which leads me to believe that they are not installing at all. :/

hmm thats weird.

If you give me a few hours (sorry) I can get you logged into a program called teamviewer:
www.teamviewer.com
(install as personal use and use the option to "remote control this pc")

I'll take control of your system and see if I can get you fixed up.
but I am at work currently so I need to wait till i get home :/
(about 4 hours from now)

I'll PM you on the forums and ask for your user ID + password that teamviewer gives you so I can remote in (If you trust me enough lol)

Alright,that sounds fine! I doubt a moderator of this community would do anything fishy.

Would it be a good idea to restore my computer and try to install windows 8.1? I'm running out of ideas :/

I see. So it was a problem with your windows? Is the solution to reinstall Windows?

Well sure, that makes sense. Are there tutorials on that?

Im not extremely experiences in reinstalling os'. But you probably need to reformat your hard rice first (which wipes everything). I would do some online research or get someone to help. Best of luck and please let us know what you end up doing.

I just read Win10 encrypts HD by default.....does this affect game performance? And formatting?


**Windows 10 does not enable encryption by default, you have to set this up manually using BitLocker - SuicidalChair
