    ·       (September 17, 2015) Microsoft has released KB2999226 which is an update for Universal C RunTime (CRT) in Windows.

    The Windows 10 Universal CRT is a Windows operating system component that enables CRT functionality on the Windows operating system. This update allows Windows desktop applications that depend on the Windows 10 Universal CRT release to run on earlier Windows operating systems.

    Microsoft Visual Studio 2015 creates a dependency on the Universal CRT when applications are built by using the Windows 10 Software Development Kit (SDK). Installing this update on earlier Windows operating systems enables these applications to run correctly.

    This update applies to the following operating systems:•Windows Server 2012 R2
    •Windows 8.1
    •Windows RT 8.1
    •Windows Server 2012
    •Windows 8
    •Windows RT
    •Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (SP1)
    •Windows 7 SP1
    •Windows Server 2008 Service Pack 2 (SP2)
    •Windows Vista SP2
