The Sims 4 : Error The VC++ runtime redistributable package was not installed successfully

Error: The VC++ runtime redistributable package was not installed successfully, Setup cannot continue. (1612)

The solution to Overcome The Sims 4 Error The VC++ runtime redistributable package was not installed successfully.

What error is that? The error I want to discuss is “Error: The VC++ runtime redistributable package was not installed successfully, Setup cannot continue. (1612)”.

Why can this error occur?

This error is caused because you haven’t installed an important runtime called ” Visual C++ Redistributable ” or your PC didn’t have VC Runtime installed by your PC installer) an important runtime called “Visual C++ Redistributable.”

Meanwhile, the VC Redist software component is very important to run The Sims 4 game, not even for The Sims 4 game.

Do you have to download this Windows default Visual C++ software? No need because if you buy this game, it is certain that there is already a built-in VC software in “The Sims 4__Installer\vc. For further details, see the following:

1. Find the folder where you’re The Sims 4 game is installed

C:\Program Files (x86)\Origin Games\The Sims 4

Look for the folder address above if your The Sims 4 game is installed by default.

2. Find the “__Installer” folder in your Origin The Sims 4 game folder, then open the folder

Error: The VC++ runtime redistributable package was not installed successfully, Setup cannot continue. (1612)".

(An example of the contents of the folder as shown above)

3. Open the “__Installer” folder, then select the “vc” folder

4. Open the “vc” folder, and you will see two folders, namely “vc2010sp1” and “vc2013,” as shown below

This vc2010sp1 and vc2013 folder contain the VC Redist installer, and you must install all of them if your PC is not installed at all.

Well, install one of these two first. Or, install one of them (Try and try) which one is not installed and which one is already installed on your PC.

5. Install by opening one of these folders, then selecting the Redist folder

then selecting the Redist folder

6. There are two installer options in this redist folder, namely “vcredist_x64” and “vcredist_x86.”

Run vcredist_x64 if your Windows OS is 64 bit
Run vcredist_x86 if your Windows OS is 32 bit

If you have installed the VC Redist, please re-run your The Sims 4 game, then check again. Is it possible?

If you still can’t, check again whether it’s because of an error from VC Redist or because of another mistake. As far as I know, there are three common errors in this game that I have found, including the following:

The Sims 4 VC++ error 5100 / The VC++ runtime redistributable package was not installed successfully. Setup cannot continue. (1612)

An error whose workaround is being discussed here may prevent you from running The Sims 4. However, you can fix it by installing the necessary Visual C++ components.

The Sims 4 error 1638

If you experience this error, make sure to try disabling your antivirus and recheck your The Sims 4 game.

The Sims 4 can’t open for unknown reasons.

Sometimes this error is because there is a deleted .dll file because the CC/Mod is not compatible with your The Sims 4 game or because The Sims 4 launcher file is infected with the MGR virus (you can also visit my content on How to Remove MGR Virus Total).
