The Microsoft VC redistributable packages are not responsible for the software installation. However, it is still important to uninstall them. Even if the software installs without any issues, the Microsoft VC redistributable packages may still cause issues with other software. If you wish to permanently remove the Microsoft VC Redistributable packages completely, they can be removed from Start Menu/PC, then repaired using the Add/Remove Programs utility in Windows Control Panel.
After the Microsoft VC Redistributable packages are removed, please remove any 3ds max specific items, such as the 3ds max installer, from your Start Menu/PC. However, if this step is not needed, it is ok to leave them. If the software is installed correctly, there is no need to remove these, they will not cause any issues.
Assuming the software itself has the required redistributable packages, the installer will not affect the apps installed as it installs itself. Hence, there is no need to remove the Microsoft Visual C++ redistributable packages, as they are not the cause of the problem. In addition, Windows updates are supposed to patch the incorrect version, but Windows update is not always available for all installed software. Either way, download the 3ds max installer from the official website.
