 winGRASS is based upon the OSGeo4W environment.

 as you can see in [http://download.osgeo.org/osgeo4w/x86/release/msvcrt/
 OSGeo4W 32bit MS runtimes] or
 [http://download.osgeo.org/osgeo4w/x86_64/release/msvcrt/ OSGeo4W 64bit MS
 runtimes], these are the msvcrt needed to run winGRASS, and there are
 differences between 32bit and 64bit.

 GRASS dependencies are sometimes updated/recompiled with newer VC++
 versions, then new msvcrt dependencies are added.

 it's really hard to test which msvcrt are available or already installed
 on win 7, 8 or 10 boxes. MS windows doesn't provide a systematic way to
 test/check this.

 as already mentioned in some comments above, there are some NSIS
 functionalities to skip some installer steps when /S mode. code
 snippets/PR are very welcome.
