The Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 Service Pack 1 Readme contains the following sections:
OverviewThe Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 Service Pack 1 addresses known binary compatibility bugs with certain run-time redistributable files in Visual Studio 6.0. This Service Pack also provides all the source files and debug versions of the Microsoft Visual C++ run-time components for Visual C++ developers.
Before installing this Service Pack, shut down any Visual Studio applications. Install this Service Pack whenever you have updated or changed any of the applications in Visual Studio to ensure that you have the latest fixes.
InstallationTo install the Service Pack, insert the compact disc into your computer's CD-ROM drive. From the root directory of the Service Pack, run Setup. Setup will detect the language of your computer's operating system and run one of the following setups:
\fra\setup (French) \deu\setup (German) \enu\setup (English) \jpn\setup (Japanese) \esp\setup (Spanish) \kor\setup (Korean) \chs\setup (Simplified Chinese) \cht\setup (Traditional Chinese) \ita\setup (Italian)
If your language setting is not in this list, the English version of Setup will run.
Determining the Files That Setup InstallsSetup might not install all the files included in this Service Pack on your computer. If you do not have a copy of the file on your computer, or if the file on your computer is a more recent version than the one in the Service Pack, Setup will not update the file on your computer.
Updating Files You Previously ModifiedThe primary way Setup determines which files to replace is by checking the version information in a file's resources. However, some files, such as text files and non-binary files, have no resource information. In these cases, Setup uses the time stamp to determine which files need to be replaced.
If you have altered the time stamp on any of the Visual Studio component text files or files that do not have version information, then Setup may not replace those files. Source files and header files are examples of some files you might have changed.
Determining the Update History of the Products Based on File VersionsTo determine which updates have been made since the initial release of a product, you will need to examine the version number in the properties of one or more files.
