MS11-025 has been reissued – all previously mentioned problems have been solved

Thank you to several readers who have alerted me to the fact that on June 15th, a whole new set of tools and redistributable patches for Visual C++ 2005, 2008, and 2010 have been released, fixing the problems that I blogged about a couple months ago. Please read MS11-025 where you’ll find links to the new tools updates and redistributables.

So any workarounds I’ve posted for the April 15th patches are no longer necessary once you update to the latest versions.

Relevant redist DLL versions:
VC2005 SP1 + KB2538218: 8.0.50727.6195
VC2008 SP1 + KB2538241: 9.0.30729.6161

As a bonus: the VC2008 SP1 static code bloat problem caused by the April 15th update has also been fixed by the above patch.

Of course, for VC2005 SP1 users, this blog post is still relevant if you want to control the version number in your manifest:

Avoiding problems with VC2005 SP1 Security update KB971090
