I made the pack for all of you from MS redistributables. It took some time to confirm, which versions are actually the latests. On x64 platform just install both x32 and x64 files (VJ# has one "x32_only" installer and 2nd one "both_x64_x32" - here install only the 2nd on x64 system). MSXML v4 and VF# are x32 only, still install them on x64 OS. For installing MSXML v5, refer to included howto.txt. These DLLs are quite useful on any fresh Windows installation. (MSXML v6 and v3 (x64 and x32) are already preinstalled, autoupdated and so latest in W8.) If you have older versions than those below present on your OS, uninstall them 1st.
MSXML v4 SP3 v4-30-2117-0 (KB2758694) x32
MSXML v5 SP2 v5-20-1099-0 (KB2687499) and (KB2760574) x64 x32

Tip - How to check version of installed VC++ 2010:
VC++ 2010 only shows shortened version in Programs and Features dialog in Control Panels (like v10-0-40219).
From this shortened version, it can't be determined, that you have the latest version installed.
To ensure, that you have latest version, display details of \Windows\System32\mfc100.dll. Then the full version (like v10-0-40219-XXX) will be displayed.
Silverlight v5-1-30514-0 (KB2977218)
VC++ 2003 v7-10-6119-0 and Common Controls v6-1-98-34
