dtSearch software dependencies

Article: DTS0187

Applies to: dtSearch Desktop/Network

dtSearch requires the 64-bit and 32-bit versions of the "Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable Packages".  The files are named vc_redist.x86.exe and vc_redist.x64.exe, and are available from Microsoft at these links:
     https://aka.ms/vs/17/release/vc_redist.x86.exe (Microsoft 32-bit Redistributable Download)
https://aka.ms/vs/17/release/vc_redist.x64.exe (Microsoft 64-bit Redistributable Download)

The dtSearch installer includes both of these packages and will install them with dtSearch they are missing or out of date. 

If you are running dtSearch from a shared folder without installing it on each computer, or if you are deploying dtSearch with an MSI file, then these components may need to be installed so dtSearch can run. 

The Microsoft redistributable packages support command-line switches for automatic deployment.  To see the switches available for each file, run it with the /? command-line option.  You will see a message like this summarizing the options available:

For automatic deployment, the /passive or /quiet options can be used.

For more information on these components, please see: Redistributing Visual C++ Files (microsoft.com).
