Run-time components that are required to run C++ applications that are built by using Visual Studio 2017
Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2017 installs run-time components of Visual C++ libraries. These components are required to run C++ applications that are developed using Visual Studio 2017 and link dynamically to Visual C++ libraries. The packages can be used to run such applications on a computer even if it does not have Visual Studio 2017 installed. These packages also install run-time components of C Runtime (CRT), Standard C AMP, and OpenMP libraries.
This package is only a metapackage which points to the latest Visual C++ Redistributable version released in the Visual Studio 2017 release channel. The actual installation of the runtime is performed by the vcredist140 package.
