When installed via the MSVCRT++ redistributable package,
Windows Update but keeps this component up-to-date!

2013-08-06 developer replies:

a. "EAC was released two months after the release of
the service pack"

2011-09-11 is two months later than 2010-05-17?

b. "EAC is written in Modula II and needs no MSVCRT++"

The satellites used by EAC but need it!

c. "EAC uses SQL Compact DLLs from Microsoft, which
request the exact library version in their manifest
(Visual Studio 8 enforces this). Since I use the
latest SQL Compact Installation I had to include the
corresponding MSVCRT++ DLLs"

- the manifests of the sqlce*35.dlls refer to version
- Visual Studio does not enforce anything in a manifest
- see <http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/aa375680.aspx>!
- the latest SQL Compact Edition is NOT used, see above
- the "corresponding DLLs" version 8.0.50608.0 are NOT

d. "what does 'application local' mean?"

Obviously, the developer has no clue how manifests and
"side-by-side" installations work and didnt notice the
contents of REDIST.TXT
