I am having trouble installing a couple of new PC games from disc. Upon attempting to install I get this message:

A newer version of Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable has been detected on the machine.


Can anyone help with this?

What are the requirements for the games...re Visual C++?


You can have multiple versions installed, I believe.


I would install the versions required by the games.

What games? Most times I find the installation wizard handles any direct x or Microsoft redistributables that needs to be installed, but you may be able to find those online if they're not included for some reason.
