    Abc123,

    I do not know if your problems are related. I would not think so since mine was fixed by the above process. I will let others chime in with better suggestions.

    I can't believe MS has not solved this problem. I have done the repair on MS Visual C++ 2012 twice since doing a clean rebuild early this month. It stops KB3119142 for a while, but MS Visual C++ 2012 breaks again and KB3119142 starts installing again. It has updated 8 times since I rebuilt 10 Home, 5 times today.

    What makes the 5 times today so strange is I paid for and installed 10 Pro yesterday, used Group Edit to set Windows Update to Notify to Download and Install. No updates should be applied until I select them to install. In spite of this, KB3119142 installed 5 times today.

    Not only is KB3119142 broken, but Windows Update in 10 Pro is broken. I should ask MS for a partial refund for 10 Pro, since it isn't working right.

    I also had this problem . I went to Programs and Features and repaired every Microsoft Visual C++ 20XX Redistributable that could be repaired . I noticed some of them gave me an error and said that Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable was uninstalled. Reboot.

    I then went to https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down....aspx?id=30679

    Click on Click here
    Install X64 and X32 only not arm. Reboot. Now it's fixed.

    Slugger, I appreciate your reply. Repairing the MS Visual C++ Redistributables is at best a temporary solution. I repair them frequently (at least the 2012 and 2013 versions as these are the only repairable ones), but that doesn't always stop KB3119142. It always seems to come back after a cumulative service update. The update seems to break MS Visual C++ again.

    I paid for and installed 10 Pro so I could (and did) use Group Edit to set the Windows Update option to Notify to Download and Install. Not only should this stop unwanted updates at times I need my Windows PC to be stable, it should stop all updates until I choose to install them.

    What is frustrating is KB3119142 not only ignores this setting, it did so 5 times today! With Pro and Windows Update settings set to Notify, I should be notified KB3119142 is waiting to be installed again, so I could repair MS Visual C++ (again), restart, and Check for Updates. This should eliminate KB3119142 from being installed. But KB3119142 is so badly broken, it installs anyway.

    What is even more frustrating (if such a thing is possible) is MS has been notified again and again about KB3119142, and has not fixed it. This implies MS is ignoring the issue, or is unable to fix the issue. Either possibility reflects badly on MS support.

    I was an IT specialist for 43 years, including many years in software product support. I would be ashamed if I created a software update that behaved so badly.

    I've checked updates since last night and I haven't seen KB3119142 pop up. My history had 20 installs of this update!
    I have to agree MS needs to fix this. Either uninstall these redistributables and then install the latest one. I understand different apps need them but it is confusing at the least.
    I will watch the updates and report back.

    This is the fix!


    I went to the page:
    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/down....aspx?id=48145 and downloaded the
    VC++ packages (both x64 and x32 in my case since my machine has a 64 bit processor).

    Running both those packages fixed the problem. (I use Visual Studio Community 2015)

    Hope that helps someone. :)

    I am running Win 10 Pro (Insider - Fast Track) and current build 14316, but this problem has been in the last several builds. Its disturbing that even as a MS partner and giving them this problem build after build it remains.
    It is the first thing I check on a new build upgrade. It just keeps going and going and..

    I ran Change/repair for both 'Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Redistributable (x86) - 11.0.61030' & 'Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Redistributable (x86) - 11.0.60610 which then errors and then disappears.
    Secondly I ran Change/repair for both 'Microsoft Visual C++ 2012 Redistributable (x64) - 11.0.61030'
    This x64 version requires a restart.
    I rebooted.

    Guess what? Still going and going and .... (KB3119142 VC++ 2012 update 4)

    I even have Visual Studio 2015 Pro with update 2 - so there are numerous VC redistributables in the list.

    Batter up!

    I am experiencing the same problem myself. I was wondering why it was repeatedly downloading (successfully) that KB3119142 update. Been doing it since Tuesday's Windows monthly update whenever I get my Windows Defender definitions update throughout the day. It just did it again just a few minutes ago before posting this.

    I'm using Windows 10 Home edition, Build 10240.

    I am also wondering what is going here as well with this? It's got to be some kind of bug or hiccup.
    OT, but I just love your cat avatar.

    Unfortunately after each insider update you're going to have to perform the same procedure. For some reason it's reset and need to be repaired each time.

    Hah!
    I don't need to repeat, Windows 10 does it all day now. I have a massive History of this KB installing for a few months now...

    When it stops I will post anything magical.
