SYMPTOMS

You cannot use the x86-based version of the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (Vcredist_x86.exe) to deploy the x86-based version of the Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime Library.

This problem occurs when you apply a hotfix to the C++ Runtime Library before you try to deploy the C++ Runtime Library.

CAUSE

This problem occurs because the correct DLL versions or dependency on code changes may not exist in the Visual C++ Runtime Library. The dependency on code changes or the DLL versions are included in an updated version of the original Visual C++ Runtime files.

Visual C++ Runtime Library hotfixes are intended to be applied on a computer that is running Microsoft Visual Studio 2005. However, the hotfix files may not update the Vcredist_x86.exe program that you use to deploy the new Visual C++ Runtime Library.

RESOLUTION

A supported hotfix is now available from Microsoft, but it is only intended to correct the problem that is described in this article. Only apply it to systems that are experiencing this specific problem. This hotfix may receive additional testing. Therefore, if you are not severely affected by this problem, we recommend that you wait for the next Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 service pack that contains this hotfix.

To resolve this problem immediately, contact Microsoft Product Support Services to obtain the hotfix. For a complete list of Microsoft Product Support Services telephone numbers and information about support costs, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://support.microsoft.com/contactus/?ws=support
Note In special cases, charges that are ordinarily incurred for support calls may be canceled if a Microsoft Support Professional determines that a specific update will resolve your problem. The usual support costs will apply to additional support questions and issues that do not qualify for the specific update in question.

Prerequisites

Before you apply this hotfix, you must first use the x86-based version of the Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (Vcredist_x86.exe) to deploy the x86-based version of the Visual C++ Runtime Library.

Restart requirement

You must restart the computer after you apply this hotfix.
