    VCLibs 12 daily download help


    Hi All,
    I know that this has been asked before, but I'm getting a daily download called VCLibs 12, sometimes three or four a day.
    I have read through the threads and it apparently is linked to the get Skype app. I uninstalled this app a few weeks ago, but still get this update.
    Could it be something else?

    Hi!

    I found this:

    So more info that i found out
    Automatic App Update (task scheduler) is the what is "find" vclibs 12 update constantly every time it runs changing the frequency to say every 3 day means it only "finds" this every 3 day Thing is IF the check is done manually from with in the store it finds no update at all for vclibs 12 most cause it just wants to keep downloading and install the same verison that is already installed, So question becomes why does Manual updates check find nothing and this Automatic App Update task does?
    No solution! I know.....! And MS? No idea.....!

    Still getting four of these every day. I know it's nothing to worry about, but it's just bugging me that I don't know what's causing it.
    Anyone help?

    Still getting 4 VClibs 12 downloaded every day.
    I've reset Windows store and uninstalled GetSkype, but they still keep returning.
    I've trawled the internet and their are quite a few people with the same problem, but no one has an answer.

    Hi again!

    At the Moment no solution, fix or Workaround for this.....whatever. Have to wait for a MS Fix.

    It seems to be a reference for store apps to Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Runtime - perhaps it can't find that and gets flustered... if not already installed this may help...
    Download Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013 from Official Microsoft Download Center

    NB: Just taking shot in dark here...

    I've just downloaded the Visual C++ packages and installed them.
    I'll have to wait until tomorrow morning to see whether the VClibs 12 try to download again.
    Do I have to keep all of my old Visual C++ packages?
    Here's a snip of the Visual C++ packages that I had on my system before and after this install:

    Hope it works!
    Thanks again!

    Yes you do need to keep them... Redist. packages are not backwardly compatible - each app that uses each, may need some deprecated stuff not in the newer ones.
