It's obvious that the current visual c++ is outdated and it may be causing issues with newer computers which have a newer version perhaps by updating th c++ app used may fix some of the clientside problems caused by an older version and newer version possibly conflicting because both having bein installed on the same computer. This may or may not fix the problem ive had with the error msg caused because a the side by side program failed to launch but u should at least keep software updated like any normal person would...

The only reason it'd say the "Side by side configuration is incorrect" is if the vcredist package didn't get installed, to fix this just run the vcredist_x86.exe file in the GameCQ folder in the C:\\ drive.

I don't think you understand how the redists work. They're just different versions of the same dll files. They give no performance benefits or anything like that. They're just designed to give maximum stability with the platform you compile on.

You compile for that version, and you supply that Visual Studio's library files in a redist form so that everyone has support. It would make absolutely zero difference to change.
