SYMPTOMS

The Microsoft Software License Terms that are attached to the English version of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package (VCRedist_x86.exe, VCRedist_x64.exe, and VCRedist_ia64.exe) in Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 do not let you redistribute these files. The incorrect license terms specify that you may install and use only one copy of the software. However, the correct license terms specify that you may install and use any number of copies of the software.

CAUSE

This problem occurs when Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack (SP1) installs Visual C++ Redistributable Package files that have the incorrect license terms.

RESOLUTION

To resolve this problem, use one of the following methods.

Method 1

Download Visual C++ Redistributable Package Service Pack (SP1), and then replace the Visual C++ Redistributable Package files on the disk.

Method 2

Use this hotfix to replace the Visual C++ Redistributable Package files on the disk.
