    Well downloading the latest Visual C++ packages didn't work.
    It was worth a try though.
    Those pesky VCLibs were back again this morning

    Oh well.. we tried anyway - btw, I did look a bit further into the SDK concerned (seems it's still alpha!) - but suffice to say it raised more questions than answers... so unfortunately apart from uninstalling apps, can't think of a clean solution.

    A couple of days ago, I was having an update error with the Windows "Alarms & Clock" app.
    It wouldn't update, and I couldn't even open the app.
    I reinstalled all apps using powershell, and since then all my apps are working without errors and I haven't received any
    VCLibs 12 updates!

    The Visual C++ libs you're talking about for redistribution is not the same as the one in the updates which is in C:\Program Files\WindowsApps and used by the Windows Modern Default Apps:

    C:\WINDOWS\system32>dir "c:\Program Files\WindowsApps\*vc*
    Volume in drive C is OS
    Volume Serial Number is 2484-EBDD

    Directory of c:\Program Files\WindowsApps
