(Update: I’ve reinstalled them all, not working. I’ve tried removing all x86 version like I read from other another post, still no luck.)
Newbie here. I noticed there were solutions stating that have visual C++ Redistributable 2012/2013 installed could solve the problem whereas I pretty much installed them all but VS still complains. Any ideas? Thx~~

Are you running MonoGame 3.7.1 or 3.8?
Thx guys, problem solved.
Your advices, I just did them both.

I have searched on Google and tried to install VSRedist 2012, 2013, both x86 and x64 without success.
I also cloned the repository and built the sources. It doesn’t fix the problem.
The strange thing is that it’s work on my work PC (almost the same PC), but not in my home PC…

Restart computer, open up VS installer then Repair.
