VC++ 8.0 on Win server 2012R2 Won't install RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi 

    I have a program written in C++ 8.0.  I am trying to install the runtime under Win server 2012R2 , I do not get a completed message.  When I try to run the c++ program I get the following message

    the application has failed to start because  its side-by-side configuration is incorrect.

    Microsoft said this is no longer supported

    Any help would be appreciated

  • The v. 8.0 is  VC++ 2005. Correct, it is no longer supported. Upgrade.

  • run SxSTrace.

    since the runtime is most likely installed it could be another file that you are supposed to ship. If you used any other component in your program, regardless if it is Microsoft's, third party or something you wrote, make sure you deploy it as well.
