Replace Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable files

I have done a reset of Win 8.  Most information about the apps that were removed and have to be replaced, I understand.
The exception is a group of files as follows.  I can not find the exact information about replacing them.  One answer leads to another answer, so the
solution has turned out to be very confusing.  Can you help me find the exact downloads for these files.
I will greatly appreciate your help.  So far, I am very pleased with the Microsoft Community for answers.

1.  Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable -x 64 9.0.30729.17
2.           "                                "                    x64 9.030729.6161
3.           "                                "                    x86       "
4.           "                      2010x64 Redistributable - 10.0.40219
5.           "                         "    86        "                       "

Again, any help will be appreciated.

Hi,

 

Thank you posting the question in Microsoft Answers.

 

I am sorry for the inconvenience.

 

As I understand “You want Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 and 2010 for Windows 8” am I correct?

 

Please reply to the question:

 

 

Here are the links to download Visual C++:

Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86):

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29

 

Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x64):

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=15336

 

Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x86):

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5555

 

Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package (x64):

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=14632

 

I would suggest you to download and install and see if that helps.

 

If you face any compatibility issues while installing them, you may install them in compatibility mode for previous version of Windows supported by the software.

 

Program compatibility is a mode in Windows that lets you run programs written for earlier versions of Windows. Most programs and games written for Windows Vista and Windows 7 also work in Windows 8, but some older programs might run poorly or not run at all.

 

Follow these steps to install the driver in compatibility mode:

a.       Right click on the setup file and select “Properties”.

b.      Select “Compatibility” Tab.

c.       Make a check mark next to Run this program in “Compatibility mode” and select previous version of Windows supported by the software, from the drop down list.

d.      Then click on “Apply” and “Ok” option.

e.      Then install the programs.

 

Hope this information helps. Do let us know if you need any further help. We are happy to help you.

Wes 31 thanks for reminding  me of who I am. 11.08.15

I cannot mark any of these helpful, since I already spent more time than I can afford trying to find solutions to the problem I have , which is what I call overcrowding by this tool on my computer, why this many and in so many versions? I wish to reduce these to one or two. is there a solution, or do I take a chance and delete the lot. I don't know how useful they are or useless either.

There must be someone out there who can fill me in on the need for this many on Windows 7. 64 bit.

Adobe Flash Player 18 Active X--- what is this used for, call me dim, but I have seen so many bad things said about this software, why do we need it and why hasn't the developers fix it's problems so the public would actually like using it.

I am trying to reduce software to make room on my hard drive for more useful stuff.  This is another bit of software that will be un-installed.
