See https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2977003/the-latest-supported-visual-c-downloads for more details. These packages are included in Genesys Pulse Collector IP and usually are installed automatically.
    • Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.x (64-bit), Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.x (64-bit) (starting with release 9.0.004) with Updates from RHN enabled, CentOS 7.x (64-bit) (starting with release 9.0.001), CentOS 8.x (64-bit) (starting with release 9.0.004).
      Discontinued Operating Systems support:

    • Any required packages must be available on the operating system. The Installer provides a notification if it discovers that any packages are missing, such as compatibility packs for the 32-bit platform. These packages have generic names, for example: compat-glibc*, compat-libstdc+*, libstdc+, compat-openssl10, libcrypt*, libxcrypt*, and libnsl*.
    • Beginning with release, Pulse Collector requires the OpenSSL 1.1 runtime libraries package from the Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) package repository on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.
      To install the package:
      1. Enable the EPEL repository on your system. For specific instructions for each Operating System, see Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL).
      2. Execute the following command to install OpenSSL 1.1 runtime libraries: sudo yum install openssl11-libs
        No additional packages are required on RHEL8 and UBI8.
