View Full Version : VCRedist reinstalls on every launch

So I had a few errors with VCRedist in the past. Some games say that it failed to install, but launches anyway. Some games (Dungeon Defenders) fail completely. VCRedist on Eufloria doesn't fail, but it re-installs everytime I launch the game. Only takes a minute, but still confusing.
I should mention that I have tampered with the Windows registry, so that my default installation path and common files is now on Z: instead of C:. Steam, and all it's games, were however installed manually on Z: before I messed with the registry, so there shouldn't be a problem right? Is it that VCRedist installs (or at least should install) in Program (x86) while Steam is in Program. I didn't have the (x86) folder by the time Steam was installed as I hadn't changed default locations.
