What are the additional components?
The additional components include Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages, which are required to run any C++ application built using Microsoft Visual Studio (such as Corona Renderer, Corona Standalone, Corona Image Editor, but also other software). These components come as small files such as standalone installers or Windows Update packages and they are provided by Microsoft for free.
Do I need to install those components manually?
No. By default, our Universal Installer will install all the required components automatically. You may however need to install them manually in some situations, such as using the "unpack files" option in the installer, or if the automatic installation fails for some reason.
Where to download them?
You can find the newest version of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable here:
Note: always download the x64 version!
Which version to use?
Always download the newest x64 version of Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable available on the Microsoft website.
Is there a silent mode for installation?
Yes. Run the installer from Elevated Command Prompt (type "cmd" into the Windows search, right-click on "Command Prompt", select "Run as Administrator") and use the following switches: /install /quiet /norestart
