    The redist contain all runtimes (CRT, ATL, MFC, OpenMP)
    you only need the latest

    each of those redist is just labeled with the component that was fixed in the security update

    Then why did they release them separately? Those redists are different in size. I haven't checked the content yet but I'm curious if there's any difference between those two releases (MFC and ATL).

    They are not released at the same time

    download/26347 is v8.0.50727.6195 - June 14, 2011
    contain security fix for MFC runtime (it include the 2009 security fix for ATL runtime too)

    download/14431 is v8.0.50727.4053 - July 28, 2009
    contain security fix for ATL runtime (along with all previous fixes for other components)

    no need to overcomplicate the situation
    just install latest security 8.0.50727.6195 or latest hotfix 8.0.50727.6229

    Later contain previous security patches/hotfixes - so all have different version number => binary different: *.dll
    #1: 8.0.50727.4053 (QFE.050727-4000)
    #2: 8.0.50727.6195 (QFE.050727-5600)
    v53: 8.0.50727.6229

    Hello again! I've got another question. In the description of the repack it says:
    "Universal CRT:
    complementary part of VC++ 2022 redist.
    ..."
    Does it mean that the UCRT is originally included in the VC++ 2022 redist or that the UCRT that is installed by the repack is somehow related to functionality of the 2022 redist (so it's recommended to install it)? I have already installed the 2022 redist separately with no issue on my Win7x64 so I'm wondering if i still have to install the UCRT.

    By the way, thank you for your help and explanations. I appreciate it! :)

    If UCRT is not detected for Windows Vista / 7 / 8 / 8.1:
    - original VC++ 2022 redist will install update KB2999226
    - the repack install update KB3118401

    if your Win7 is updated with Monthly Rollup, it already include UCRT

    Hi, Could you tell me what tools are used in creating this installer? I looked for several SFX creation tools, but none came close to the quality of this installer.
