    Confusion about Runtime DLL numbering

    Historically, the MSVC runtime DLL's were identified by their version numbers. So as an example, programs written with MSVC8 would use msvcr80.dll and anything written with MSVC10 used msvcr110.dll etc. But this seems to stop at MSVC12 (which uses msvcr120.dll). From VS2015 onwards, MSVC seems to be using version 14 of the C runtime - but... I only just noticed today that there's no msvcr140.dll on my system.

    So how does this all work these days..?

    All advice is offered in good faith only. All my code is tested (unless stated explicitly otherwise) with the latest version of Microsoft Visual Studio (using the supported features of the latest standard) and is offered as examples only - not as production quality. I cannot offer advice regarding any other c/c++ compiler/IDE or incompatibilities with VS. You are ultimately responsible for the effects of your programs and the integrity of the machines they run on.

Also note that I only provide advice and guidance via the forums - and not via private messages!
