    I personally think v14.29.30031.0 is the one. I mean, it HAS to be :D

    What about a last Windows XP 32-bit pack without the 64-bit components? That would save some space on a CD when slip-streaming the pack. :)

    I made a test package:
    Code:
    v35
    VisualCppRedist_AIO_x86_x64: 28.6 MB / Extracted 237 MB
    
    VisualCppRedist_AIO_x86_XP : 16.8 MB / Extracted 107 MB
    worth it?

    Do the latest packs even work on XP? AFAIK, there are also problems removing older packs, it always errored out with "too many parameters" or similar message.

    v35 is the latest for XP
    the scripts never supported removal for XP (because reg.exe is missing functions)

    Long time ago someone created a version that works very well until today on Windows XP (and not only). ;)

    Could be beneficial to save 12MB on a 700MB CD. But if it is to much work, then it's not worth doing a XP Pack.
    Also is the Universal CRT" and the "Visual Studio 2010 Tools for Office Runtime" compatible with Windows XP?

    It's already been done, but didn't verify it yet

    yes, ucrt is part of VC++ 14 redist itself for XP (not separate update)
    VSTOR 2010 is also compatible

    Would be a one-timer only, anyway, probably no more updates needed, ever.

    4 versions links can lead to miscopy :)

    For some reason exe didn't install 2019 runtimes and had to manually extract exe and run installer batch script for it to work.

    May I ask why the redistributables for the later versions are shipped as a minimum+additional instead of redistributable? what's the difference?

    What's you OS?

    it's Microsoft design
    supposedly, the minimum runtimes are enough for most C++ programs
    additional contain MFC runtimes

    10 on 19043. Might have been something on my end. Also thanks for the explanation, so pretty much minimum runtime + additional runtime = redistributable?

    Also what does the "ARP" batch file do when executed? Thanks

    Yes

    ARP script hide or show uninstall entries for VC++ redists in Control Panel / Programs and Features
