Redistributable Setup error: Requirements mismatch

Asked By 20 points N/A Posted on -


I am running Windows XP SP2 64bit Operating System and last week I have downloaded Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable. Now I am getting the following error message when I try to run the Setup. Is this the problem with compatibility or anything else? I am waiting for your reply to resolve this issue as soon as possible.

Thanks in advance.

Setup has detected that this computer does not meet the requirements to install this software. The following blocking issues must be resolved before you can install Microsoft Visual C++2010 x86 Redistributable Setup software package.
