Problem:

The application is deployed with a copy of the ACUCOBOL-GT bin directory included, or the Runtime was installed on a server and the client PCs map a drive to the bin directory to execute it. This can result in an error when the client PC is missing the Microsoft C Redistributables. With version 8.1.2.1,  adding the two assemblies, Microsoft.VC80.CRT and Microsoft.VC80.MFC enabled the Runtime to execute in this fashion without error. However those same assemblies do not work with newly released Version 8.1.3 and 8.1.3.1.

Resolution:

Attached is an archive, 813-redist-32.zip, containing the two assemblies for use with Version 8.1.3 and 8.1.3.1. Download the archive and extract to the 8.1.3 or 8.1.3.1 bin directory (or wherever the bin directory contents were copied). After extracting, that target directory will contain two sub directories, Microsoft.VC80.CRT and Microsoft.VC80.MFC.

Alternately, the archive may be obtained from the SupportLine website at http://supportline.microfocus.com/websync/extend813.asp. It is located under the title "Redistributables" and is available in 32- and 64-bit.
