Visual C++ Redistributable Packages


Visual C++ Redistributable Packages install runtime components of Visual C++ Libraries on a computer that does not have Visual C++ installed. The libraries are required to run applications that are developed by using the corresponding version of Visual C++.
 

For Visual Studio 2008

These packages install runtime components of C Runtime (CRT), Standard C++, ATL, MFC, OpenMP and MSDIA libraries. They are installed into the native assembly cache, also known as the WinSxS folder. They are installed on versions of Windows operating systems that support side-by-side assemblies, for libraries that support side-by-side deployment models (CRT, STL, ATL, MFC, OpenMP).
