Official Microsoft Runtimes Appreciation Thread

Microsoft gives us Runtimes so our Games run. Appreciated.

Microsoft doesn’t allow us to freely distribute them so Steam has to use Workarounds like the _CommonRedist directory. Appreciated. [1]

One runtime isn’t enough for all of the games, every game needs the exact runtime files used to make the game. Appreciated. [1]

Microsoft for some reason manages to put all their previous runtimes into their new OS without a problem so if you upgrade, your problems are gone. So go buy more Microsoft to make your old Microsoft work again. Appreciated.
