Do you know where and how to install redistributable DLL of VC++ 8 (nov 2005)?

I think you shoueld copy them in the same directory as your EXE.

It is ture but as I understood - it is better to run:

VC ++ 8 drive:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 8\SDK\v2.0\BootStrapper\Packages\vcredist_x86\vcredist_x86.exe

for the installation.

Thank you,

Well copying them to the same directory as your application ensures they're not overwritten with an incompatible set of files.

You can also instead copy them to system32 as long as you enable the proper verison/date-timestamp checks.

However, simply running that redistributable setup is truly the best way of getting everything on there in the correct/consistent fashion.

If you still have problems running your application after doing that, then I recommend you get Microsoft's Dependency Walker (depends.exe). It's available from MS Visual C++ as well as the MS Platform SDK.
