vc++ 2008 redistributable
Posted on 2015-01-11
I have a win32 console app that I compiled under 'Release' mode in visual studio VC++ 2008.
I followed the MS setup tutorial using the iexpress.exe and try to include the correct version of vcredist_x86.exe to my installation package.
On my machine there are the following versions for this:
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v6.0A\Bootstrapper\Packages\vcredist_x86
07/18/2009 01:13 AM 1,843,544 vcredist_x86.exe
1 File(s) 1,843,544 bytes
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0A\Bootstrapper\Packages\vcredist_x86
02/20/2011 01:14 PM 4,995,416 vcredist_x86.exe
1 File(s) 4,995,416 bytes
C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\SDK\v2.0\BootStrapper\Packages\vcredist_x86
07/12/2009 02:12 AM 2,705,744 vcredist_x86.exe
1 File(s) 2,705,744 bytes
I tried the one in v7.0A, and upon install, it says something for 2010, so I take that it is for VS2010?
I then tried the one in v6.0A, and upon installation, it didn't say anything and run through install very fast (but my main C++ application exe is not installed...)
So, one question, which version of these correspond to VC++ 2008? Or could I go online to download from MS website? I thought using local copy of this redist where I did the development would stand most likely to work on client computers, right? Please help.
