The package library currently has version 12.0.30501 of the Visual C++ 2013 runtimes. The latest version is 12.0.40660.0 (KB3179560). This version fixes a bug related to the use of certain CPU features, see https://connect.microsoft.com/VisualStudio/feedback/details/811093/visual-studio-2013-rtm-c-x64-code-generation-bug-for-avx2-instructions. In this bug report, Microsoft indicated they were not going to fix the bug for VC++ 2013; according to the KB entry, they changed their mind.
Can the package library be updated to this version?
