I am deploying a Virtual machine in an Azure DevTest lab environment from Azure-DevOps ARM templates.
I need the VM to have C++ redist 2010, 2012, 2013, 2019 installed.

What is the best way to install it?

Any pre-build task in Azure DevOps pipelines that do the job and helps to automate the process ?
Same for other MSI and artifacts that does not exist by default in Azure.

    @MADHUN Ahmed ,

    From a DevTest Labs standpoint typically you are going to set up a lab leveraging images, artifacts, and quickstart templates. It's also worth mentioning the Custom Script Extension tool.

    (Edit - @MADHUN Ahmed )
    You can create custom artifacts as well as leverage the artifact "Install Chocolatey Packages", which can install a wide variety of packages from the Chocolatey community (including C++ redistributables):
