so can i remove the all the versions of visual c++ installed and then run the 3ds max installer ???
will it work and not affect other applications?
Yes you might have some other applications which are dependant VC++ runtime, this is the Microsoft component which shared by many applications.
VC++ runtime would installed when you run the 3ds max installer, if you want you can do this manually too(to fix the error only with VC++ installer)
but i have many of vc++ installed shall i remove all of them? this is the list-
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable x86 9.0.30729.17
