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