I was doing my monthly maintenance of defrag and updating my video driver when my driver update software notified me that I had Microsoft runtime libraries drivers out of date. So I looked into the process and this is what I found. To start I examined what needs to be updated.

 

These versions of runtime libraries can not be updated. You do not need to worry about them

We need to verify which versions you have. Note there is a problem found.

How to update?

Update method #1  to update the Microsoft runtime software

To start, highlight the runtime name and right click. Note we are going to use the change option next

Choose the change option

Now we are going to use the repair option only. What happens is the software will update itself automatically during this repair process

Note : We are not uninstalling the runtime software

 

Sometimes this works, however Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 redistributable software had many updates and the method one process did not update correctly. So I used update method #2

 

Update method #2  to update the Microsoft runtime software

For the second method I went to this site below

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads

Where I downloaded the update file. It was here I found there were two new runtime libraries that I did not have installed.

Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 redistributable x86
Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 redistributable x64

And in regards to driver hardware, I used the software called Driver Booster here. It is a free software. The professional version you have to pay for in getting extra features. And it will not bombard you with ads either.

Anyways I thought I would let you all know about these updates for the runtimes
