    Current repack is based on that repack by ricktendo64

    if you know or use programs built by them, then install them

    I installed the Redistributable Runtimes through IObit's Driver Booster, altough they say that their program install the most up-to-date versions, I see comparing them with the ones in this post that them have old version numbers:

    Is this true or the versions numbers showed in "Programs and Features" are not the real ones?

    Do yourself a favor and never use that program again. Only causes grief.

    Anyone would expect more from a pay program :rolleyes:... anyway.

    I also see that this script installs 2 versions: Additional and minimum.
    What is the difference between these 2?

    They separated the actual runtimes into two MSI packages since 2012
    the original setup install them both as well, but they are hidden

    the repack get rid of the setup wrapper, which leaves us with the two packages shown

    Helps in case you're shipping C++ based applications. Additional runtimes component may include Spectre/Meltdown checks and other security checks.

    Hi there.
    Is this repack suitable also for windows Server (concretely 2012 R2 and 2016) or it's not recommended?
    Thank you :)

    Hi

    Each VC++ installer is recommended if you use applications written in Visual Studio.

    If it's installed on Windows Server, it's the most suitable (and should be installed) ;)

    Need some guidance please

    so if I'm reading this correct and want to use VisualCppRedist_AIO_x86_x64.exe in SetupComplete.cmd with Windows_7_Image_Updater_v2018.05.17 I would edit SetupComplete.cmd like so; ?

    remove line -> cmd.exe /c %windir%\Setup\Scripts\vc_redist\Install.cmd and delete contents, and have VisualCppRedist_AIO_x86_x64.exe in there instead.


    then add -> %windir%\Setup\Scripts\vc_redist\VisualCppRedist_AIO_x86_x64.exe /y /aiS

    /ai - Quiet mode, no user input required or output shown. *All* Runtime packages are installed.

    /aiH - Hide or Show Runtimes entries in Add/Remove Programs panel. does /aiH = Hide and /aiS = Show ???



    Final results should be like the below? all I want to have is three things installed, and two of them show up in Add/remove

    Code:
    start /HIGH /MIN compact /C /I /S:%programdata%
    start /HIGH /MIN compact /C /I /S:%windir%
    
    %windir%\Setup\Scripts\vc_redist\VisualCppRedist_AIO_x86_x64.exe /ai /aiS
    %windir%\Setup\Scripts\NET_Framework\.NET_Framework_v4.7.2_Setup.exe /q /norestart
    
    :LOOP
    tasklist | find /i "compact.exe" >nul 2>&1
    IF ERRORLEVEL 1 (
      GOTO CONTINUE
    ) ELSE (
      Timeout /T 5 /Nobreak
      GOTO LOOP
    )
    
    :CONTINUE
    cmd.exe /c %windir%\Setup\Scripts\WuaCpuFix\Install.cmd

    There is no /aiS parameter

    VisualCppRedist_AIO_x86_x64.exe /ai
    Quiet mode, extraction window shown

    VisualCppRedist_AIO_x86_x64.exe /ai /gm2
    Quiet mode, extraction window not shown

    /aiH is manual script to hide or show, you should use it after installing Windows

    vc80.crt and vc90.crt are inbox components since Windows 7 (or Vista)
    Windows 8.1 & 10 has newer versions

    but VC++ redist 2005/2008 are not just crt:
    Code:
    Visual C++ Redistributable installs run-time components of C Runtime (CRT), Standard C++, MFC, C++ AMP, and OpenMP libraries. 
    and no, we cannot take new crt files from Windows 8.1/10, they don't apply to all systems and will cause confliction

    The SQL 2014 SP3 installer seems to include a newer version of CRT 2012 : version 11.0.61137.400, in the file x64\setup\sql_engine_core_inst_msi\sql_engine_core_inst.msp There does not seem to be an installer for this version, and i have no idea whether it is supposed to go into system32.
