    visual c++ 2008 express

    I recently downloaded Visual C++ 2008 Express Edition to check it out, tried compiling a simple Hello World program, it compiled fine but when I press F5 to run the exe it gave me this error:

    This application has failed to start because MSVCP90.DLL was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

    Reinstalled it, but that didn't fix the problem.

    Help please

    Have you checked the Microsoft support site?
    I downloaded it a while ago, but haven't tried installing it yet.

    This happens to me in VS 2005 when I link my project with the runtime library as a multithreaded DLL. In VS 2005, you can change this in Project->Properties->Configuration Properties->C/C++->Code Generation->Runtime library

    Make sure you do this for both the Debug configuration and the Release Configuration (Top-left corner in the Project->Properties window).
