For VC14, VC15 and VS16 there is now only one Redistributable, called Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019

When you have already installed the VC14 and/or VC15 Redistributable. Then after install of the new, the Redistributable VC14/15 is updated from 14.0x.xx/14.1x.xx to the new one 14.2x.xx , it is called Microsoft Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable and you can still use VC15/14.

Note from Microsoft: Visual C++ 2015, 2017 and 2019 all share the same redistributable files.
For example, installing the Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable will affect programs built with Visual C++ 2015 and 2017 also. However, installing the Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable will not replace the newer versions of the files installed by the Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable.

This is different from all previous Visual C++ versions, as they each had their own distinct runtime files, not shared with other versions.


VS16, VC14 and VC15 are backward compatible.
VS16 is backward compatible to VC15/14 and VC15 backward to VC14. That means for example, a VC15/14 module can be used inside a VS16 binary (for example PHP VC15/14 as module). See also www.apachelounge.com/viewtopic.php?t=8261
