Upgrade the most commonly used PI Interfaces to use only the Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable
Please upgrade the most commonly used PI Interfaces so that the only Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable version that they require is the 2015-2019 version. This will reduce the size of the install kit, make it faster to download, make it faster to install, reduce the wear on the customer's disk, and reduce the clutter in the list of installed programs.
Here are the versions of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables that some of the most commonly used PI Interfaces currently use:
OPC DA & OPC HDA: 2008, 2010, 2012, 2017
PI To PI: 2008, 2012, 2017
UFL: 2008, 2012, 2013, 2017
RDBMS: 2012, 2019

The 2015-2019 Redistributable is now the 2015-2022 Redistributable.
