Why do we need redistribution kit?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • If I have some running code build with VS 6.0,Now this application can run on XP SP3 ,Vista,windows 7.

    Now, If I build same source code with VS2008,EXE will not run on a system  without redistribution kit ex."http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=9B2DA534-3E03-4391-8A4D-074B9F2BC1BF" 

    IS there any alternative to overcome this problem?

    without redistribution kit it will give me side by side error on running application .

    I have moved to VS 2008 for converting my existing application to 64 bit platform.
