Windows 7: redistributable?

redistributable?

Hi I can remember when I use to format my PC redistributable use to install loads When I installed a programme or game. If I went into uninstall there where about 10 different versions. Now there is only 2 even after I install the same games programmes etc. Not so long ago I did a post saying should there be so much. So why now only 2 are shown in uninstall?. Not formatted my PC 7 days so I should think more redistributable should be installed. Could this be the problem I am having with my Pc from colour to performance lately?. I no you can install them manually but has said in past I didn't have to.

The 2 I have installed now are.

Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x64 redistributable - 10.030319
Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x84 redistributable - 10.030319

Like I said I use to have about 10 from different years and versions.

The version numbers don't look tight to me for the redists involved.
What I have for those are 10.0.40219 - possibly the service pack versions of the ones you have.

Have you reinstalled Windows? ONLY those redists included in programs you have installed will be present in the listing - since they are the only ones required.

Yes I have formatted about 7 days ago. These redistributable are from motherboard driver. But when I have formatted in the past new updated version have installed on there own but last 3 times I have formatted newer version not been installing.

Like I say when I formatted in the past the game I installed first use to install redistributable automatically but last 3 times they haven't and been 7 days now. Which seems strange as said also there where quite a lot of them too. But now only these 2 and not updating them self's or threw windows update.

I use to have something like this installed. look further don the page for pic. This is not my Pc this is just what use to get installed when ever I installed a new game from formatted pc.

Also first thing I did after formatting and all updates etc is install steam and a game. The game from steam use to install the redistributable when you did the first time play and other updates what your pc needs but this also has stopped.
