Surfer Installation Fails Due To VC++ Runtime Error

Surfer requires the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables for Visual Studio 2015 to be installed prior to Surfer installation. If your machine does not include these runtimes, the Surfer installer will install them on your machine prior to installing Surfer.

If you receive an error that Surfer is unable to install the redistributables, you should:

  1. Cancel the Surfer installation.
  2. Manually download both the x64 and x86 files from Microsoft and install them.
  3. Run the Surfer installer again. Surfer will then install.
