Visual C++ 6.0 Run-time Components Review
|" Install the latest version of the files and operating system components that are required by most projects built with Visual C++ 6.0. "
Vcredist.exe is a self-extracting executable file that installs the latest version of the Microsoft Visual C++ run-time files and operating system components that are required by most projects created with Visual C++ 6.0. These files include fixes that are included with Visual Studio 6.0 Service Pack 4 (SP4).
Beginning with Visual Studio 6.0 Service Pack 5, Vcredist.exe is included with the service pack. The Vcredist.exe pointed to by this article will continue to be the Visual Studio 6.0 Service Pack 4 version.
Vcredist.exe installs the following core files, which are included with Visual Studio 6.0 SP4. These files are base dependencies for most components and applications created with Visual C++ 6.0:
* Atl.dll (Windows 95 and Windows 98)
* Atl.dll (Windows NT)
* Comctl32.dll (Windows 95 and Windows 98)
* Comctl32.dll (Windows NT)
* Mfc42u.dll (Windows NT only)
In addition, the following files are also installed by Vcredist.exe. These are supporting files for the Vcredist.exe Setup program:
NOTE: Vcredist.exe is not a full-featured installation package. As such, it is not a recommended redistribution method for the preceding files. This package does not communicate error messages back to the program or user that is starting Vcredist.exe. Therefore, we highly recommend that programs starting Vcredist.exe first check for available disk space (approximately 10 MB), read-only system files, administrator privileges, and a valid TEMP directory. The absence of any of these prerequisites can cause this package to incorrectly install some of the files onto the target system. In addition, this package does not install any database components or localized satellite dynamic-link libraries (DLLs).
