  1. cannot install any microsoft redist, another installation in progress when there isn't.


    so in order to play a few games, i need the microsoft vb c++ stuff. unfortunately, the problem is, every time that i try to download them, it gives me an error that another installation is already running. i have tried everything, from ending tasks, trying to find things in the registry that are currently installing and failing, shutting down my computer, etc, but nothing works. is there any non-installer version of the redist or am i just borked eternally, like sisyphus attempting to roll his boulder up the hill, forever doomed to attempt to install microsoft visual c++ 2010 x64 only to be gr

  3. Printer isn´t working after latest update.

    After the latest update from Windows, my Canon Pixma ip6600 printer isnt working. In Device Manager it shows up as working properly but when I go to print it isn´t listed as an option in any programs. Troubleshoot suggests it´s a USB 2 printer on a USB
    3 port and that that´s the problem but that cant be since it worked fine before the update. I´ve tried to uninstall and plug it back in but that doesn´t work either.

    cannot install any microsoft redist, another installation in progress when there isn't.

    need specific VC redist packages for repair of installed vc redist packages

    Just a little addendum to my last post.

    I decided to just go ahead and axe the whole lot of vc redist's that were installed on my machine. everything but the vc redist 2017 x86. when i uninstalled the 2013 x64 redist the entry for the older version disappeared and did not reappear when i reinstalled
    the vc redist, so i guess that issue is solved. Now for the reason for this second post.

    All the reinstalls of the vc redists went well until i got to the vc 2015 x86 redist. setup for the redist kept erroring out saying another version was installed. no amount of tinkering i could do would get it to say otherwise. then i stumbled across the
    reason. having vc 2017 redist installed will keep the 2015 redist from being serviced (installed, updated, etc). this is because they are both registered as version 14. the x64 version of 2015 went well, but because i had the 2017 x86 version already installed
    the install of the x86 2015 redist setup program aborted the install.

    the quickest way for the end user around this is to uninstall the 2017 redist before servicing the 2015 redist. this is far from an optimal solution, but there you have it. At least until Microsoft fixes the issue.

    the best way for M$ to fix the issue is to release a patch or whatever that changes the 2017 redist version to version 15.

    Update..... finished installing the 2017 VC redist's looks like the 2017 files actually are meant to replace the 2015 versions. this is something that was not occurring before. my system was saying that both the 2015 and 2017 versions were installed before.

    so i guess i don't need to install the 2015 redists anymore, and just skip ahead to the 2017 redist from now on?
