DePauw-specific Installation Instructions

  1. Download and install Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Redistributable 32-bit. If the software is already installed, you may get an option to Repair, Uninstall or Close. You should select repair, which will verify that the prior installation is correct.

    Select Close if Newer Version is Installed
  2. The remaining steps vary depending on whether you have a 32-bit operating system or a 64-bit operating system. If you are are not sure which operating system you have, you can:

      Checking whether system is 32 or 64 bit
    • The System Type lists the operating system.
