  • Yes that version of it definitely works! But do we need our users to install all 3 versions of vcredist_x86? Or just this latest version? Meaning is this version cumulative? The file size looks smaller than the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) package.

    Overall I think the three are:
    Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86)
    Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86)
    Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Service Pack 1 Redistributable Package ATL Security Update

    Also, Do the (x64) versions include the (X86) versions, or do we need to install all 6 variants of the redistributable separately?

  • Your code should check for the installed assembly and act accordingly.
