what functions actually require the vcredistributables to be installed

Recommended Posts

hello, some c++ apps seem to require the vcredist_x86.exe to be installed in order to run, and others dont. what exactly are the functions or classes that make an exe require them? is it the STL? thanks!

AFAIK are the redist runtimes required to be installed for all applications which have been build against the DLL-version of the VC runtimes. You can toggle the runtime to be used in Visual Studio's Project Options Panel.

Best regards,
