Create a bundle and deploy the prerequisite with its normal installer? I do believe the VC runtime team moved away from MSM's.

Subject: [wix-users] Help making a WiX 3.x installer for VSTO Add-in for Office 2016 and Office 365
I am new to the list and I'm hoping WiX is the solution to my problem. I have developed a VSTO Add-in for Word 2016 and 365 using Visual Studio
2017 and C#. What I want to do is distribute a VSTO Add-in for Microsoft Office 2016 and Office 365 (specifically Word). When I go to publish my VSTO Add-in for Word (2016 and 365) it requires a the Visual C runtime from Visual C 2010 be installed first. I'd like to make an MSI to distribute my VSTO Add-in that will install the Visual C 2010 runtime before it runs the "published" VSTO installer. I built MSI but not since dealing with Visual Basic 6. Can anyone point me in the right direction?
I tried playing around with the MSM and MSI packages released by MS but I didn't have much luck (couldn't find any good documentation).
