Interesting Note on Windows Installation during Domino 8.5.3 FP4 upgrade

It has already been noted that there is an Interim Fix available for the “early” release version of 8.5.3 FP 4.

What is also of note is what is actually installed either with the interim fix or with the “new” version of 8.5.3 FP4.

The Domino fix pack installs Microsoft Visual C ++ 2005.  What is worth noting is that it will install this version even if you have a later version installed on the OS. (ie on A windows 2008 R2 server for example Microsoft Visual C ++ 2008 is already installed).

Make sure this doesn’t break and of your applications and/or monitoring software!

Let us know if you found this useful.
