I ran 7.0.0-Orion without installing Visual C++ 2008 redistributable package!

Works fine on: Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3

I thought my XP was a clean version so I searched for msvcr90.dll and found it on my system. That means Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable was already installed.
Note: I performed search using “Everything-” recommended by Bobs.

Other thing I noticed:
Run Start.exe initial pop-up displays Uniform server V5-Nano series
I assume left over from integration.

Thanks for posting.

Your redistributable package check is usefully may include a similar check in the Run_pre_check.exe on next release. :o

Any references to Nano or Carbo are indeed artefacts and will eventually be removed. ;)

All the best

A quick (but important) update:

Microsoft has released an updated version of the library which includes a security patch. We should all reference this one for people to install. It can be found at:
