Link to microsoft visual c++ 2012 redistributable package (x86) RRS feed

  • Question

  • This may not be the best place in the technet forums for this but since my problem is related to my DPM server here it is.  Where can I find a working link to download microsoft visual c++ 2012 redistributable package (x86) for server 2012 R2?  I am getting a replica inconsistent error backing up exchange 2013 since my last round of windows updates and everything I can find about it suggests I need to update microsoft visual c++ 2012 redistributable  on DPM.  I do indeed see that the x86 version is behind that on the exchange server.  The x64 versions are the same however (11.0.61030).  So where can I find a working link to microsoft visual c++ 2012 redistributable package (x86) version 11.0.61030?  All of the MS website links seem to be 404 or otherwise broken.

    I will just add right now, windows updates is not listing it as an available update on the DPM server.

  • For what it's worth for anyone who finds this thread by web search, getting the same version of microsoft visual c++ 2012 redistributable package on both the exchange server and the DPM server allowed me to  clear the issue with the replica inconsistency error (which is exactly what I expected based on multiple other web posts I had found). 

    Considering that this issue arose when the package was updated on the exchange server through windows update and the same update was not offered through windows update on the DPM server, this is pretty annoying.  But then when you add the fact that the downloads pages on the MS websites are broken or 404 for this package that really sucks.  I had to go to a third party website that had cached the direct links to the packages to get the one I needed.

    Hopefully someone from MS will see this and contact someone else in MS who can fix that.  At the time of this writing if you go to the MS download center:

    and search for the package you will not find it.  If you find the link to where the download page for it apparently used to be:

    you will see this:

    "We're sorry, this download is no longer available."
