    Do I need to install the 32 and 64-bit redistributables of Visual C++ 2008? I am running a 64-bit OS.

    Just x64. Most likely the x86 version would error/halt install if you tried.

    x64 should include everything required by x86. It is the installer that matters, not necessarily the files included.
