Can't install visual C++ without SP2...?

Hi, I recently tried to download Visual C++ 2010, but the installation keeps giving me an error about not having Service Pack 2 Redistributable. I don't know what this is, I don't know why I need it. I didn't need it the last time I installed Visual C++ on this computer.
It's a set of updates for your operating system.
How do I get this set? Every download I try doesn't seem to work.
What version of Windows are you using?
Windows XP Professional 64 Bit.
This is the download link:

If this webpage does not work for you, use direct download link:
http://download.microsoft.com/download/8/b/2/8b2347d9-9f9f-410b-8436-616f89c81902/WindowsServer2003.WindowsXP-KB914961-SP2-x64-ENU.exe

Of course, you can get SP2 from windows update too.
