I am sure you're aware of the "MSVCR140.dll"/"MSVCR110.dll"/"MSVCR100.dll is missing" error. I ask, is there one single download one can make to remove all three. I need this to list the right prerequisite for my cocos2d-x game that was made is VS17. I got VS2010 AND VS2012 AND VS2015 c++ redistributables on my testing laptop to remove the error message for my game, would getting the VS2017 redistributables alone have solved it straight away?
It's also possible that you'd need earlier versions if you use other DLLs that were compiled with earlier versions of VS, if that wasn't clear.
For example, even when developing in Visual Studio 2017, if you link against some SQL packages that only provide version 14.x. SQL-related DLLs, you'll most likely need to still install the 2015 redist packages.
The thing is, I compiled the game on another laptop by downloading all 2015, 2012 and 2010 redistributables (I didn't use the redistributable 2017 yet is still ran, why is this? does the vs2017 have all the three combined?)
