Need to develop a roadmap to remove Visual C++ Redistributable from AutoSys Agent on Windows


Release : 11.3

Component : CA Workload Automation System Agent



NOTE: If you are NOT using BLOB/GLOB, autoping -s against the agents, SSA enabled in the Agent etc features which requires Agent to server connectivity, then AutoSys SDK/libraries will not be loaded by Agent so the Agent does not need Visual C++ runtime at all. If EEM is not installed on this machine, then Visual C++ runtime is not needed on the machine.

To remove the Visual C++ runtime, do the following steps:

Go into the Windows registry and search for the following:

Microsoft Visual C++ 2010  x64 Redistributable - 10.0.40219

In the registry, find where it is installed on your Windows machine and the name of the msi file. Then run the following command to remove it:

msiexec /x <name of msi file> /q
