Re: How to install vc++8.0 runtime files silently

If you have downloaded the standalone VC 8.0 redistributable packages, you will need to modify the command lines slightly. The following command lines can be used to install the original release of the standalone VC 8.0 redistributable packages:
  • For x86: vcredist_x86.exe /q:a /c:"VCREDI~1.EXE /q:a /c:""msiexec /i vcredist.msi /qn"" "
  • For x64: vcredist_x64.exe /q:a /c:"VCREDI~2.EXE /q:a /c:""msiexec /i vcredist.msi /qn"" "
  • For ia64: vcredist_ia64.exe /q:a /c:"VCREDI~3.EXE /q:a /c:""msiexec /i vcredist.msi /qn"" "

The following command lines can be used to install the Visual Studio 2005 SP1 release of the standalone VC 8.0 redistributable packages:
  • For x86: vcredist_x86.exe /q:a /c:"VCREDI~3.EXE /q:a /c:""msiexec /i vcredist.msi /qn"" "
  • For x64: vcredist_x64.exe /q:a /c:"VCREDI~2.EXE /q:a /c:""msiexec /i vcredist.msi /qn"" "
  • For ia64: vcredist_ia64.exe /q:a /c:"VCREDI~1.EXE /q:a /c:""msiexec /i vcredist.msi /qn"" "

Re: How to install vc++8.0 runtime files silently

If you are trying to install a service on Vista that is dependent on VC++ 8.0 you cannot use merge modules.

Does:
Vcredist_x86.exe /q:a /c:"msiexec /i vcredist.msi /qn /l*v %temp%\vcredist_x86.log"

work? I was unable to get:
Vcredist_x86.exe /q:a /c:"msiexec /i vcredist.msi /qn /l*v %temp%\vcredist_x86.log"

working either.

I suggest you start with this:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/259403

Then click on the first link under 'More Information'. This is to the 'VC6RedistSetup_enu.exe'. This will get you up to Visual C ++ version 6 runtime files.
