Replacing Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable



OTL depends on Microsoft Visual Studio Tools for Office Runtime (VSTO, for short) to run. VSTO, in turn, depends on Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable.

Some of our customers have raised concerns regarding this version of MSVC++ Redistributable no longer being supported. At this time, we have not yet received further information on an updated VSTO Runtime version, based on a supported MSVC++.


Our tests showed that VSTO Runtime works fine with the latest version of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable, which can be downloaded from here: 

If you have security concerns, you have to manually uninstall MSVC++ 2010 and then install the latest version of the MSVC++ runtime. Please run a set of validation tests for Office Timeline after that step. We would appreciate you letting us know whether this worked or not.
