A list of known VC Runtime version numbers and installers, including mapping to KBs. This is a really useful mapping for when you catch one of these in your package; you can use it to figure out exactly what the prerequisite is. See this blog article for explanation.

Except where indicated, these are incompatible with App-V 4 packages.  Those indicated as incompatible also don't work on App-V 5 inside the package, in which case (by default) the sequencer will detect these incompatible versions and automatically install them on the App-V client by extracting them from the package when published. You can override that behavior via sequencer option on the package, but it would be better to just keep them out of the package.

There is a good security reason to keep these out of the package as well.  Several versions have known vulnerabilities, and are fixed in security updates.

When you sequence a package and see a VC Runtime file, grab the version string and consult these tables to find the exact installer that you need to use external to the package.

VC++ 2017!

The VC++ 2017 Redistributables are a REPLACEMENT for 2015.  It is not possible to have both a 2015 and 2017 version concurrently installed.  Thus, keeping these inside the App-V package might be your only solution should there be an incompatibility (we don't know of any).
