Visual C++ redistributable

I can't find a solution to patch the Visual C++ redistributable tools installed on every PC.
In Software Update Management or WSUS I don't seem to find a category I can use to enable them.

Can Patch My PC integrate them?

Especially version 2017 would be nice.
Older versions (I think pre 2013) don't upgrade but install a newer version next to the older one. so this is most likely not what we want. newer versions correctly upgrade (version 2015 upgrades to version 2017)

Sorry to do this to you, but we are moving all our application request from our support forum to a new platform (https://ideas.patchmypc.com/).

We need to make this change due to the amount of customer growth and new application request. It's no longer manageable on the support forum platform. We need to have a voting system to help understand what new application request would benefit the most significant number of customers, and that will be one factor we use to prioritize the application request.

If this request is still a product you need, could you please re-submit the application request at https://ideas.patchmypc.com/.

  • Please only include one product per-each new idea submission as this will help with the up-voting per product.
  • If you could also include the information mentioned at https://patchmypc.com/forum/index.php?topic=2790.0 in the idea request that would be great and help expedite the process if the product is accepted.
