Yes, you should, see

"In your deployments, you can redistribute any version of a Visual C++
library that's licensed for redistribution. Here are three ways to
deploy them:


Local deployment, in which you copy particular Visual C++ DLLs from your
Visual Studio installation—typically in \Program Files (x86)\Microsoft
Visual Studio version\VC\Redist\platform\library\—and install them on
target computers in the same folder as the application executable. You
can use this deployment method to enable installation by users who don't
have administrator rights, or for applications that can be run from a
network share."

You should be able to download the one you need from the link you
posted. They may be part of some bundles, but you should be able to get
whichever ones you need for free.
