How to check if VCRedist 2017 is installed programmatically RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm searching for a possibility to check if VCRedist 2017 is installed programmatically. Currently the only solution which I've found is to use the Windows Product Query. But as this command is taking up to 15 minutes on some machines we can't use this check anymore.

    If anyone knows a better way of performing this check, please let me know.

  • Check the registry keys for the installer.  It is much faster.  Examples are in the Gallery.
