Finding information about vcredist_x64 is very frustrating. download.microsoft.com's search result lists everything on microsoft.com except the latest vcredist...
In this instance, even google.com fails to return relevant information.
Typing vcredist_x64 /? to get at the command line options is not very helpful on high DPI monitors (only the first four or five lines are visible, even though the font is ridiculously small!).
I have spent the last hour researching vcredist_x64 trying to figure out where VS 2017 hides it. The answer is VC\Redist\MSVC\14.10.25008 located in VS 2017's installation folder. But how will my build script locate VC 2017's folder? Probably by witchcraft, because there are no longer any environment variables pointing us in the right direction.
