[Addon] Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Runtime Libraries (x86)

Post by Zephyr » Tue Nov 23, 2021 3:16 am

I present an addon for Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable (x86) - 14.0.24215.1.

It can be uninstalled from the Add/Remove Windows control panel, but unfortunately it cannot be re-installed because the long file names that Microsoft have used have to be truncated to the 8.3 format on the Windows installation disk.

There is the standard international version and an English language version with the non English MFC language specific resources removed, and each of these is divided into a build for C drives and D drives because the values in the SharedDlls key are named with a path.

The registry entries made by the the MSI installer have been retained except for those it created for uninstallation of the package.

Vcamp140.dll and Vccorlib140.dll have been excluded because they are NT6 only modules and they have missing imports under XP.

The minimum runtime excludes the Microsoft Foundation Class library which according to Microsoft "is an application framework for programming in Microsoft Windows. Written in C++, MFC provides much of the code necessary for managing windows, menus, and dialog boxes; performing basic input/output; storing collections of data objects; and so on.

api-ms-win-core-file-l1-2-0.dll has a file size of 19,344 bytes in my addon. I downloaded 14.0.24215 again from Microsoft here and compared the hash of their redistributable with the hash of the redistributable I used to make the addon, and they are the same. I installed 14.0.24215.0 on my system using the freshly downloaded Microsoft redistributable, and api-ms-win-core-file-l1-2-0.dll in this installation still has a size of 19.344 bytes.

I did notice that API stubs with the same name and version number in 2015 and 2015-2019 have different sizes. Where did you obtain your installer for Microsoft Visual C++ 2015?
XP FOREVER!
