Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio

Please ensure that the latest version 2015-2022 of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio is installed on the target machines.

This is a required system component on Windows operating systems to run IronOCR, and many other modern pieces of software reliably.

Install Visual C++ Runtime for Windows

Download and run the installer from the official Microsoft support CDN

  • 32-bit machines requires x86 only
  • 64-bit machines require both x86 and x64
  • Latest version 2015-2022

For our "SaaS/OEM Redistribution" customers, one big advantage of installing the C++ runtime is that it can be packaged and distributed as part of an MSI or Executable program installer.


Alternative Approach: Windows Update

Some users prefer to get a successful fix by installing the Windows Update for Universal C++ Runtimes on Windows.
This approach is recommended by Microsoft for older Operating Systems such as Windows Server 2012, Windows 8 and Windows Vista.
