Do all computers need Visual Studio to play UE4 game?
I packaged a game that I am working on and trying to download and install it on another computer. The computer has windows 10 and is brand new. I tried downloading the .exe file of my project on it, but it tells me I need Microsoft Visual C++ runtime to download the game. Does my game have to use this to play it, or is it just a setting i need to change in my packaging?

No, VS is only required to compile C++, once is compiled it can be exectuted anywhere you package to, only requirement is having VS2015 C++ Runtime which most users install anyway, if not point user here https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=48145 you can also try bundle it with you installer of the game
