Downloading the Redistributables

Last updated 8 months ago

To download the Visual C++ Redistributables to a local folder, use Get-VcRedist. This will read the array of Visual C++ Redistributables returned from Get-VcList and download each one to a local folder specified in -Path. Visual C++ Redistributables can be filtered for release and processor architecture.

New-Item C:\Temp\VcRedist -ItemType Directory
Get-VcList | Get-VcRedist -Path C:\Temp\VcRedist

Get-VcRedist downloads the Redistribuables and returns the array passed from Get-VcList to the pipeline so that it can be passed to other functions (such as Install-VcRedist)

Redistribuables are downloaded into the target folder:
