Vagrant up and Vagrant Add Blank Error

Last week my boss told me that I have to be outstation in another state of Malaysia to be on the client side for a week. So since I work with a PC in company I requested for a laptop so when I’m outstation I can take it with me.

Well as usual once I got the machine I formatted it and installed my tools. after installing Vagrant and Visualbox I was getting an annoying blank error when running vagrant up for the first time.

D:\Devbox>vagrant up
Bringing machine 'default' up with 'virtualbox' provider...
==> default: Box 'scotch/box' could not be found. Attempting to find and install...
    default: Box Provider: virtualbox
    default: Box Version: >= 0
The box 'scotch/box' could not be found or
could not be accessed in the remote catalog. If this is a private
box on HashiCorp's Atlas, please verify you're logged in via
`vagrant login`. Also, please double-check the name. The expanded
URL and error message are shown below:

URL: [""]

Basically somehow it was not able to start downloading the box. After searches on the internet I came across the right solution which was to install Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 SP1 Redistributable Package. Yeah that did the trick.

So decided to post this here so if by any chance you also faced the same issue this blog post can save your time.
