Visual C++ Redistributable 2013 (vcredist for 2013) platform support for Windows 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    As per the information published for Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable 2013, Windows 2012 R2 is the latest platform supported on Windows Operating systems.

    Our application code (C++) is built with Visual Studio C++ 2013 and we are using VC++ redistributable 2013 on Windows 2012 R2 platform to work with the binaries which are built as mentioned above.

    Now, we are planning to use VC++ redistributable 2013 on Windows 2016 platform to work with same binaries. When I check for platform support of VC++ redistributable 2013 for Windows platforms, Windows 2012 R2 is the latest platform supported and I dont see Windows 2016 is mentioned in the supported platforms list. (Ref: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms235435(v=vs.120).aspx)

    When I test internally with VC++ redistrbutable 2013 on Windows 2016 platform, binaries are running good as expected as of now.

    So, I am assuming VC++ redistrbutable 2013 supports on Windows 2016 platform. 

    Can you please provide confirmation on support of VC++ redistrbutable 2013 supports on Windows 2016 platform? So that, we can use our application on Windows 2016 platform using VC++ redistrbutable 2013.

    If these are any published KBs for support of VC++ redistrbutable 2013 on Windows 2016 platform, Please share. 

    Please provide confirmation on support of VC++ redistrbutable 2013 on Windows 2016 platform.

    Thanks,

    Venu

    Since you have successfully used VC++ redistrbutable 2013 on Windows 2016 and you only want to confirm this from Microsoft, I suggest you post on this link for better help.

    Your understanding and cooperation will be grateful.

    Best Regards,

    Sera Yu
