Regarding to Pre-requisite

I have 2 apllication Zetaware Trinity and Zetaware genisis

I have a clean machine for capture where not even a single software is installed. In that machine when I try to install this application. it shows some error regarding to side by side.

But I have a machine where Microsoft c++ redistributables 2005 and 2008 is installed. I tried to install those application in this machine and it installs fine.

Does that mean c++ redistributable 2005 and 2008 are pre-requsites for these aplications.

According to http://www.zetaware.com/support/install_faq.html yes the Visual C++ 2008 sp1 redistributable package is required:

This application failed to start ...


When you launch the program, you may get this error. This is because Microsoft Windows is missing a component. You may download and install the component from this link at Microsoft web site to resolve this.

You will repeatedly come across these redistributables in your packaging career.  It would be a good idea to package them up and keep them handy so that you can use them when required for testing etc.

Might also be a good idea to talk to your SOE guys and get a list of what is already on the client build, e.g msxml, dotnet, etc.

Good luck and dont forget to breath!

  • it would be worth to point out that some application are very specific to particular version of such pre req . e.g. Machine has version 9.0.30729..6161 however some cases main application will still need version 9.0.30729.4148. - rock_star 8 years ago
