    I think he'll stop when 2022 is out of Preview. 2022 contains backwards compatibility to 2015-2019, too.

    Hey there.

    Quick question: So to be clear, this package here contains everything that's in the "MultiPack Visual C++ Installer 2.8" by BobSpwg and even more (as his last version is 14.28.29325.2, while this one is 14.30.30423.0) ?

    To me it seems it skips 2015-2019 versions or was it just simply replaced by the latest 2022 one?

    Just want to be sure! Thanks.

    Actually, the 2015-2022 packages are only updated versions of each other. So, the 2022 VC++ is a more up-to-date version of the 2015, 2017, 2019 ones.

    Hello!
    I have two questions related to the source links archive (available on GitHub).

    I have noticed that for some VS redists (2005 and 2008) the latest versions are not hosted on the microsoft server and they don't have any working page/article about the releases. Any idea why the latest versions are not available for download on the microsoft website but they still keep the older versions?

    My 2nd question is: for some VS redists (for example 2008) there are two versions of the same release. For example: 2008 / 9.0.30729.6161 (EXE 9.0.30729.5677) SP1. vcredist_x64.exe and vcredist_x86.exe hosted separately on microsoft.com and windowsupdate.com are different in size. Any idea why?

    a) For some because standalone is: self-extracting [wrapper around [ wrapper around [msi installer] ] ]
    b) For others - due archives actually being packed differently (even if payload is binary the same)

    Note: WU link is still packed using SHA1 cert, while other one is repacked with SHA256...

    - Both were bundled with Visual Studio Hotfixes (KB2643995, KB2834565), not downloadable separately
    and those hotfixes are no longer available (hotfix service discontinued)

    - if you install latest VS redists (2005 and 2008) without modifying ProductCode, Windows Update will offer older Security releases

    - MSI version is what really matter

    - like spriditis said, latest security release of VC++ 2005/2008/2010 in Download Center were resigned with SHA256 few months ago (only the EXE wrapper)
    the content and MSI package did not change

    Any idea why they re-released (on 12th of May, 2021) some older versions of 2005/2008/2010 VC++ redists as "the latest" while in fact they are not? Maybe those newer hotfixes were kind of experimental and not meant for general regular usage? I realize that the hotfix service was discontinued but it doesn't explain why they didn't include the hotfixes in the latest re-release.

    Because the intention is just to update digital signature, it's not re-release

    i guess they forgot or don't even know about the last hotfixes releases (those were always treated as 2nd degree)

    OK, just one more question I would like to ask.
    What's the difference between MFC and ATL VC++ redists? For example: 2005 MFC redist (microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=26347) and 2005 ATL redist (microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=14431). Should I install both? There is the same situation with 2008.
