That is good to know. Thanks. The installer does have the capability of
safely (it says) adding system DLLs to the Windows system directory but
I'm a little wary of doing that at the moment. There dragons may live. For
alpha test, at least, it is probably better that people install
vcredist_x86.exe as necessary.

Thanks for the Path info. Curious indeed.
