Update for Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable Package

Applies to: Visual Studio 2013 Update 5

Symptoms


When the operating system is in high-DPI mode, applications that use the Microsoft Foundation Classes (MFC) library of Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 may behave incorrectly. For example, icons in an application’s ribbon may be drawn at incorrect positions. Additionally, when you click an icon in an application’s Quick Access toolbar, an incorrect menu may be displayed.

Cause


These issues occur because the MFC implementation of Visual C++ 2013 contains incorrect code for handling high-DPI mode. A fix is available for this MFC implementation, and the fix does not require affected applications to be recompiled.

Resolution


This update for the Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Update 5 Redistributable Package is released as a download-only update and isn’t distributed through Windows Update. Redistribution of this update is allowed, subject to the same license terms as granted by the Microsoft Visual Studio 2013 Update 5 release.
