 version I found was 10.0.40219.325) and get the following sha256sum:

 I downloaded the file from some random websites, and also got the same

 However, I also downloaded "Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable
 Package (x86)" from Microsoft website:

 After installing it, I get version 10.0.40219.1 (instead of
 10.0.40219.325), with a different hash:

 So I am wondering where version 10.0.40219.325 is coming from, and if
 there is some way to get it from Microsoft website.
