SYMPTOMS

The Microsoft Software License Terms that are attached to the English version of the Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Package (VCRedist_x86.exe, VCRedist_x64.exe, and VCRedist_ia64.exe) in Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 do not let you redistribute these files. The incorrect license terms specify that you may install and use only one copy of the software. However, the correct license terms specify that you may install and use any number of copies of the software.
