When one installs Windows NT 4.0, Windows NT 3.51, Windows95 which of following Dlls get installed on users machine?
MSVCRT.DLL
MSVCRT20.DLL
MSVCRT40.DLL

As far as I have observed, clean installation of
Windows95       - installs MSVCRT20.DLL
Windows NT 4.0      - installs MSVCRT.DLL and  MSVCRT20.DLL                                              and MSVCRT40.DLL
Windows NT3.51      - installs ??? ( I will check out)
(PLEASE confirm this info)

Does that mean MSVCRT20.DLL is ubiquitous?

Any comments?

Yes, what you have observed is correct. For NT3.51 contains all 3 versions, same as NT4.0.

It must be there for some sort of backward compatibilty support!
