STB for FSX install fails at downloading vcredist_x86.exe

Recommended Posts

It's impossible to rebuild the installer now for a 14 year old product, too much has changed in Windows so we have to work around it.  I've uploaded the files that should have been provided by Microsoft using the link built into the installer.  Please download and install the C++ runtime 2008 base and SP1 packages, and restart the installer.  After doing so, the installer should be good to continue without doing the download.

You can find the packages here, or from other websites of your choice:
