  • Hi .

    You can use a PowerShell snippet like the one below

    Get-WmiObject -Class Win32_Product -Filter "Name LIKE '%Visual C++ 2010%'"

    Here's the output on my Windows 10 PC

    This snippet can be easily changed to look for multiple versions of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable packages and provide you with a report.

  • Open Add and Remove Programs and look for Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable. The installed versions will be listed there. This screenshot is from Windows 10.

    Also you could use registry method, similar case here:
