The Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 Service Pack 1 addresses known binarycompatibility bugs with certain run-time redistributable files in VisualStudio 6.0. This Service Pack also provides all the source files and debugversions of the Microsoft Visual C++ run-time components for Visual C++developers.
Before installing this Service Pack, shut down any Visual Studioapplications. Install this Service Pack whenever you have updated orchanged any of the applications in Visual Studio to ensure that you havethe latest fixes.
To install the Service Pack, insert the compact disc into your computer'sCD-ROM drive. From the root directory of the Service Pack, run Setup. Setupwill detect the language of your computer's operating system and run one ofthe 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 Setupwill run.
Determining the Files That Setup Installs
Setup might not install all the files included in this Service Pack on yourcomputer. If you do not have a copy of the file on your computer, or if thefile on your computer is a more recent version than the one in the ServicePack, Setup will not update the file on your computer.
Updating Files You Previously Modified
The primary way Setup determines which files to replace is by checking theversion information in a file's resources. However, some files, such astext files and non-binary files, have no resource information. In thesecases, Setup uses the time stamp to determine which files need to bereplaced.
If you have altered the time stamp on any of the Visual Studio componenttext files or files that do not have version information, then Setup maynot replace those files. Source files and header files are examples of somefiles you might have changed.
Determining the Update History of the Products Based on File Versions
To determine which updates have been made since the initial release of aproduct, you will need to examine the version number in the properties ofone or more files.
To determine the update status of a product:
- Look in the table below to determine which file you want to examine. In some cases, you may need to examine more than one file to determine fully the product's update history.
- For each file, right-click the file in Windows Explorer, then click Properties.
- Click the Versions tab, and compare the version listed with the version in the table.
The following table lists the developer tools that have been updated inthis Visual Studio 6.0 Service Pack. It also lists the key files you shouldcheck to ascertain version information.
