Good point. I have a hidden feature that if you don't have the VC 8.0 CRT
installed and you have the >'vcredist_x86.exe' placed next to the installer
file, it won't go download and use that file. This way >users/system
administrators can roll LfW out just by copying the 'Lua_v5.1.3.XX.exe' and
'vcredist_x86.exe' >to the machines. Then execute 'Lua_v5.1.3.XX.exe'. Does
this help the situation at all?
I may be missing things but why does vcredist_x86.exe have to be involved?
Why would there normally have to be a separate download anyway? To me, it
seemed like LfW was working fine as it is. Was there some particular modules
that were unusually demanding, or is it a Windows version issue? It all
feels like a step backwards.
