After installing Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) on Windows 7 32 bit OS machine my application is not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have created one activex application in VC++. this activex application I am running in internet explorer through .cab file. Application is developed on Visual C++ 2008 SP1 .

    I am not able to run my application on Windows xp 32 bit OS(blank PC, i.e. no other software installed other than windows XP). So I have installed Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) to run this application. Now I am able to run my application.
    But when I am trying to do the same thing on windows 7 32 bit OS(blank PC, i.e. no other software installed other than windows 7), I am able to run my application without installing Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86). But when I installed Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) on Windows 7 machine, I was not able to run the application. I have uninstalled Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) from Windows 7 machine, still I was not able to run my application.

    Please suggest what I am doing wrong or missing something

     

    Thanks in advance for your help

  • Create a setup and include the redist in it. You must install the Redist version which you used to compile the VC++ application.

    Run sxstrace to see which version you need.

    I think Visual C++ Forum is the proper resource to answer your question.
