Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86), can i redistribute single files of it?

P: n/a
Hi,

until today i always forced users to download/install the
complete package of the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008
Redistributable Package (x86), but mostly my applications
only need the msvcr90.dll to run. So my question here is
if i can pack this file into my installer and redistribute it with
my application. For my case it would be just fine if the
dll would be in the same directory as the app is.

Is it legal to redisitribute the single dll or do i have to
pack the complete msi installer into my app installer,
which makes the complete installer a huge package,...

I didnt find any information until yet regarding my
question in the web,...

Regards

K.

Those are for VC++ 2003
