    Here's what mine looks like.

    I have Internet Explorer 11 installed?
    I use Google Chrome.

    PS, Hawk, you're from England? I have a tab playing CNN and listening to all the music they're playing for the new king & queen.

    I can repair/uninstall/reinstall some of the C++ Redistributables, but not about 5 of them including the one I'm trying to update. Doesn't this narrow down the causes? Is it safe to delete anything in the Registry that mentions these 5 Redistributables that I cannot uninstall using Regscanner? Could it ever cause my system to not boot?

    I had already tried that. Didn't work. See attachment.

    You can see that the problem is that the msi file it's trying to locate doesn't exist. I have 5 other of the same files and I have tried to replace the source with the path of these other runtime msi files, but none of them will work. You can see the one it tries to use 00AC... isn't on the list of ones actually on my computer, but if I change the path to one of these other ones that is on my computer none of them will work.

    I see two choices.... spend a few days messing around with them, or spend 40 minutes doing an In-Place Upgrade.
    The In-Place Upgrade won't touch your drivers, programs or data. It just fixes Windows things.

    After you do the In-Place Upgrade, then just use that All-In-One Visual C++ installer I linked before.

    What are the chances I do the in place upgrade and it doesn't fix these issues? That's what I'm worried about. And if I upgrade to Win 10 Pro from Home, does it accomplish the same thing as what you are suggesting? Because I was thinking of upgrading to Pro and so I might just kill two birds with one stone.

    This is Microsoft we're talking about. Don't do... "two birds with one stone". It usually leads to heartache.
    Yes, the In-Place Upgrade will fix the Visual C++ stuff. It will set Windows things back to the way they were when you installed Windows. The ONLY thing you lose is some personalizations.
    We know them practically off by heart. They're all in the tutorials too.

    Make sure Home is working flawlessly before you upgrade to Pro. That's true for any upgrade.
    Keep in mind that the In-Place Upgrade isn't really an upgrade... it's more like a non-destructive repair install.
    It just fixes Windows things. That's what it does, that's all it does.

    I myself have done In-Place upgrades numerous times. They are quick, easy and when finished... Windows has that new car smell back again... BUT... all your drivers, programs and data are still there.


    The only requirement is that you have about 30GB free space on your drive.
    You should also turn off 3rd party AV, firewall and encryption software, you may be running... that's it.

    I know it's hard to believe that MS made something... great... but they must have slipped up, cause an In-Place Upgrade, just works.

    Did upgrade in place. Took 40 minutes. Issue NOT resolved. When it booted back into Windows, I had my old wallpaper and everything looks the same. I was expecting some things to be different, but they aren't. How do I even know the upgrade happened? Nothing seems different, but I went through the whole process of it restarting several times then it getting to the We got some updates for you or whatever... Almost There... text on the screen, then it booted right into Windows. I didn't go through any of the initial settings or anything. I do have a Windows.old folder now, which is about 28.7GB in size. Does that confirm I upgraded? The system literally looks identical to before. I don't think I lost any settings. So much for Microsoft doing something amazing, lol. Please.
