I've done a clean install of windows 10 but I noticed that it did not install visual c++ redistributable is this a program that is packaged with windows or do the apps that I use install them when they need it. I've been having problems with a computer and haven't been able to do anything but factory reset it. Is anyone able to give me a list of programs that are supposed to be installed when I install windows?

Hi,

I'm not sure if Visual C++ Redistributable is preinstalled with Windows 10, but it can be installed manually, either by the user or by a program that requires Visual C++ during its installation. Note that not all programs can install it if it is missing on the computer.

You can download the latest version from the Microsoft website here.

To find out what programs are preinstalled with Windows 10. Go to Settings > Apps > Apps & features. You just have to omit the apps you've installed yourself, or you can do so after a clean install.
