Is it mandatory to install MSVC++ 9.0 Runtime Libs?

Feb 19 '17 at 14:41


We use Chilkat ActiveX in our software. I understand that Chilkat ActiveX depends on MSVC++ 9.0 Runtime Libs, so at this moment in the setup of our software vcredist_x64.exe is called.

The problem is, we would like our users to be able to setup our software without administrative rights, so calling vcredist_x64.exe in our setup is not an option.

Is it possible to simple copy the dlls of MSVC++ 9.0 Runtime Libs to the installation directory of our software?

If not, is MSVC++ always already installed on Windows 10?
