My project requires that Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributables be installed...how can I add these libraries or installation steps to my current project?

If you have a basic MSI package switch to the redistributable view.
Find your VS2010 redistributable here and place a checkmark before it. To the right if the Location value indicates that it needs to be downloaded then right click on the redistributable and download the file.
In the releases mode make sure you compile your setup using the setup.exe wrapper and not as a plain MSI. Setups that utilize the prerequsites require the EXE wrapper.

I do not have access to InstallShield, is there any way to accomplish this in InstallAnywhere 2015?

In install phase, put the vcredist_x64.exe or vcredist_x86.exe then execute it in silent mode (execute script action)

e.g. "$USER_INSTALL_DIR$$/$...$/$vcredist_x86.exe" /q

This should install it on the destination computer if not already installed ...
