Comment(by hellik):

 Replying to [ticket:1709 devnull007]:
 > Grass GIS does not start. It gives error of missing msvcp71.dll. Ive
 tried to install all .net packes from tnhe link given here in the
 beginning. http://grass.fbk.eu/grass64/binary/mswindows/
 > which points to http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/vstudio/aa496123
 > unfortunately after installing all that stuff. Grass GIS is still not
 running. Just disappointing for such a large project to give so poor
 documentation. Links in other bug reports given also didn't work.
 > Only source for the dll may be dll-file.com but I'm NOT willing to
 download dlls from somewhere else where it can't be trusted. So please
 give a download possibility directly from microsoft. Else your product is
 broken beyond any usability.

 microsoft doesn't ship their runtimes with the different windows versions.

 any help/hints to solve this issue are welcome.
