    Can I Reinstall Visual Studio C++?


    My PC keeps nagging me to install the Visual Studio C++ security update KB2467173. It fails every time. I ran the Windows diagnostic cab file which tells me there are one or more corrupt files but offers no other help. SFC /scannow says the same thing and says it can't fix the corrupt files. I really don't want to re-install Windows and don't have a convenient restore point. Is there any way for me to simply reinstall the C++ runtime components? I see various files on the Microsoft website and am not sure which ones might work. I'd sorta like to avoid making things worse. I'm running Windows 8.1 x64 Pro.

    Try this:

    1) Remove all VS runtimes you have installed

    2) Visit www.Sereby.org - Be Up2Date and try "AIO Runtimes" installer
