Constant system failures

I get system failures at random by playing MapleStory. The only reasons for this is conflictions with visual C++ 2015 Redistribute and other versions. Since I don't know how to sort this out correctly I'm just experiencing constant system failures. I used to not have to use to do any of this with the game.
My system has Microsoft Visual C ++ 2015 Redistributable (x86) and Microsoft Visual C ++ 2017 Redistributable (x64) and it's overwriting 2015 (x64). And 2015 (x86) appears with the default file icon when both versions of 2015 are installed. This is terrifying.

Steps to reproduce: Start the game with 2015 (x86) or higher

Edit: I launced with 2015 (x64) as I was told to by the Nexon launcher and It didn't help at all. Nothing has changed!

    Having multiple C++ redistributables installed should not be producing the conflicts of a newer one overwriting an older one that you say you're experiencing, especially when you consider that having 23 different instances is not unheard of.

    To note, I have both the x86 and x64 2015 redistributables installed(as also noted by my screenshot) and I'm not having the same issues as you, so that may not be the culprit.

    There was no reason to make this thread if reinstalling visual C++ 2015 Redistribute didn't help with your crashing issue since it was just a wild suggestion (just to see if your version of c++ was corrupted) for a unique problem that popped up for a first time in history that only happened to you.

    It is natural to have many different c++ distribution if you have many games installed that were developed in different time and each one will use their correct version (cause updating the base c++ code will break many games).
