Hi! I'm trying to install wireshark truoght Windows Installer (64-bit) in a Win 10 64, but there was an error that need some redist, and the installation stops. "The Visual c++ Redistributable installer failed with error 1618. Please make sure you have KB2999226 or KB3118401 installed. Unable to continue installation" I try to find one of these but it's always is for old version of windows and I can't install. Someone could help me? Thanks.

Error 1618 usually means that there is already a running installation process. If a reboot does not help, open the task manager and search for "Windows Installer" processes and kill them if you're not aware of any other running installations. Do this before you start the Wireshark installation. You can also try to install the Visual C++ Redistributable seperatly (
