Visual C++ Problems

So I have been having Problems downloading Rhino 7 lately…
It’s always that message that pops up. I did not have that Problem before I switched to Windows 11, but later I switched back to 10, and now I do. I tried getting back to Windows 11, and it still did not work, I tried reinstalling Windows completely and no, still no luck… I need the App for School, I just do not know what to do anymore, can somebody help me out? Also I tried installing Visual C++ again but uh the same error message pops up…

@brian - do you have an idea about this?


Yep, this is almost always caused by CCleaner or some other software designed to “remove unnecessary files” and “free up disk space”.

The solution is to run Microsoft’s Fix Problems that block programs from being installed or removed.

Sara, please run the above link, and follow the steps through the wizard for problems removing programs. Then look for the “Microsoft Visual 2019 x64 Minimum Runtime - 14.29.30040” in the list. Once that’s cleaned up, you should be able to install Rhino.
