    Hi!
    I´m gonna make a fresh install of Windows 7.
    I have doubts wheter I should install LNS 2.07 VC 2005 or the other package without VC 2005.
    I read in other post that VC 2005 isn´t required for Windows 7. In that case I should be OK with the package that doesn´t have it included.
    On the other hand, if I install the VC 2005 package, is it necessary for me to be connected to the internet or the package itself have every file required?
    Thanks in advance for any reply!:)

    You can look in the Add/Remove list to see if VC 2005 package is listed? If not then install the packaged one with VC 2005!

    Well...
    Yesterday I did my experiment and this is what i´ve learnt:

    1) The VC 2005 package doesn't include the required files. It tries to connecto to LNS site to download de VC++ package (I find this quite weird cause it forces you to be conected to Internet in order to install a firewall).

    2) The package without VC 2005 won't install directly in a fresh installation of Win 7 Ultimate (Without any update) if VC 2005 runtimes are not installed before.

    Maybe this is useful for somebody!
    Thanks anyway!!!
