  • Hi,

    That is due to a bug in the installer for the VC redistibutable package that is a prerequisite for DPM. That code is owned by another group and they are working on the fix, but since it's packaged on the DPM installation media, we can't change the package even after they fix the installer bug.  In the meantime, you can safely delete those files.

  • This is not appropriate remote push installer and by deleting will cause mistake by deleting other files and it probably accidentally deleting system files or other user data.

    Can Microsoft list down all the files to here or other make statement for those what need to be delete?

    I don't want to assume I highlighted on picture/screenshot above.

    When this will be fix?

  • Hi,

    All the files dated 11-7-2007 can be safely deleted.

    I checked the status of the VC Redist Setup bug and it has not been fixed yet.

  • Files are created at 2007 now almost coming to 2012.

    If count 2012-2007 = 5 years.

    Sorry to asking this, is still working to fix it?

  • Hi,

    I'm only the messenger, the bug is owned by another group. I'm not privy to what their plan is to fix it.
