Have problem during VC Redist install? Try this!
Hi!

I read, that many gamers have the problem, the game try to install VC Redist package at the start, and its stuck.

Try this:
Go to the game's folder. (For me it's: Steam/SteamApps/common/Doom 3 BFG Edition)
There can you find the "Installscript" VDF file.

Open it with Notepad.

There can you find this:

"InstallScript"
{
"Registry"
{
}
"Run Process"
{
"DirectX"
{
"HasRunKey" "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\Software\\Valve\\Steam\\Apps\\208200"
"process 1" "%INSTALLDIR%\\directx\\DXSETUP.exe"
"command 1" "/silent"
"NoCleanUp" "1"
}
"MSVC"
{
"HasRunKey" "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\Software\\Valve\\Steam\\Apps\\208200"
"process 1" "%INSTALLDIR%\\msvc2010\\vcredist_x86.exe"
"command 1" "/q /norestart"
"NoCleanUp" "1"
}
}
}
"kvsignatures"
{
"InstallScript" "211153f9884a4ac213bd4d3b3e98c0ea68244fc0ee7f1f99fb6ad2c3a431d60c59bb312455bf8a8118803c0f5a62e09afffa556cc2874fe1332f6a71562ec8dfbc826db8ae5b37786dd0a4f2b62509ed8bb93c6ec0b64a045cc44711b8c437c713a15b9de9059a2c47d51ffb039e1229aa8d8537a50beed51aae15923faffef0"
}







If you simply delete this part:

"MSVC"
{
"HasRunKey" "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\Software\\Valve\\Steam\\Apps\\208200"
"process 1" "%INSTALLDIR%\\msvc2010\\vcredist_x86.exe"
"command 1" "/q /norestart"
"NoCleanUp" "1"
}



And save the file, steam won't be install anymore the VC Redist Package!!!!

(If you make a Verify integrity of game cache, that set back this file to the default)

Hope this helps!
Good luck!

I prefer not messing with my registry though. Thank you both, nevertheless!

My solution is not through registry.

No it isn't and I used your method because of that. Sorry if I wasn't clear earlier.

I was saying thanks for both the methods shown.

If you start Doom 3, and nothing happen just steam try to install VC Redist...
or
steam want to install VC Redist all the time when you start Doom....

Wait DooM uses VSReist? That game came out in 1993.
Jokes aside this is probably a problem with alot of games, from GTA4 to the Shadow Warrior remake.
