What version of Visual C++ does MSFS require?

Just a simple question, what version of Visual C++ does MSFS require?

Reading over here, it just says to install a fresh copy but not if it’s the x86 or x64 version or both?

The x64 version of the 2015,17,19 redistributables.

Thanks but I think I’m good already.

I installed the x64 version via the official MS download page for Visual C++ and then noticed how MSI Afterburner wasn’t working. I then reinstalled it and noticed how it automatically installed the 2008 versions (both x86 and x64) and after that it was working again.

So now I’m having all the versions I need I hope. Guess time will tell if any other versions are required by other software I’m using.
