Latest Redistributables

Microsoft has released Visual Studio 2015 Update 1 at the end of November.
This goes with new 2015 runtimes => Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) and Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 SP1 Redistributable Package (x64).
These have version 14.0.23506.

How do I retrieve the latest prerequisites or does Installshield not bring updates for these?

Also... the installlshield redistributable downloader, when you run this, you get a status message telling 'Last Updated 10/14/2008'?!?!

Re: Latest Redistributables

You can create your own prerequisite file for any executable / msi you want to distribute with your application.
1. Download the redistributable file from Microsoft.
2. Create your new prerequisite file. For items like the VS2015 redist, you can just make a copy of the existing one and update the conditions to check for eligibility.
3. Add the newly created prerequisite to your project.

Thanks for the info...
I already did it like that.
Off course you cannot play that short to the ball for every new version of redistributable that comes out ;)

But... what is actually the redistributable downloader for? It seems not to be updated for a long time? Just wondering...
