Sorry if this is not the correct section. I'm looking for an old Microsoft C++ Runtime Library software package that contained MSVCR71.dll and associated files to package up and deploy out to 'C:\Windows\System32'. I'd rather not download seperate files from somewhere like http://www.dll-files.com/ but use a package from a more trusted source. I have looked at .NET Framework SDK Version 1.1 and it contains the files but it is a large install at over 100MB and I'd rather have something that is approximately less than 5-10MB. Something similar to 'Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86)' which is less than 5MB.
The msvcr71.dll would also be present in hardware device drivers and .NET Framework SDK version 1.1.
Actually, I'm pretty sure the standard installer for .NET Framework 1.1 (not the SDK) also contains this file. At 23mb that seems manageable to me.
However (not sure about this) it might be that the presence of a newer version of the runtime would prevent the installation of an older version, you'll need to test that
