[Addon] Microsoft Runtime Libraries Collection(x86) 2.0.7


Recommended Posts

This is intended for keep code65536's work going. Besides merely an update, I decide to divide it into several packs, for VC7-9 runtimes is almost a must-have while old VC1/VB1-4 runtimes is only for those who work with old apps. Adding to that, VC10 is a new-comer, on which nearly no apps are developed till now.


Different from code65536's goal, my goal is to provide basic Microsoft runtime coverage to satisfy the common needs that is missing from Windows XP while still providing stuffs to fill the "gaps" that Microsoft left. I have included only Microsoft C-family runtimes (CRT/MFC/etc.) and VB runtimes. No third-party non-Microsoft runtimes are included. No ActiveX controls are included. Only language runtimes. If you are looking for more than just runtimes or if you are looking for third-party libraries, then one of the other addons may be better suited for your needs.

Why a "true addon" and why not?

First, this is a "no-frills" pack. Second, the installation happens during the text setup and the very beginning of GUI setup(VC8-9), which means that the runtimes here will be installed early enough that programs that depend on these runtimes can be run at any time during Windows setup. Finally, this is an extremely "clean" install; there are no CABs to unpack, no INFs to process, which means this pack "leaves no trace".

The cons of this pack, however, is the unavoidable size increase of you XP Disc. The size increase is further more than the addon's size since the addon is compressed in 7-zip, probably the best one, while the files on XP Disc are compressed in cabinet. In the case you want to save space, please consider using a switchless installer. Additionally, there seems to be some apps that don't like the true addon and insist to install the runtimes of their own.

So I offer them both.

The VC10 runtime addon .ini file list doesn't match the file names and is causing a "missing file" error during dosnet filecopy.













Filenames are:

mfc100chs.dll (instead of mfc100cn.dll)

mfc100deu.dll (instead of mfc100de.dll)
