MS Windows C++ Runtime

The Tag That Photo application is written in Visual C # and C++.  It utilizes the MS Windows C++ runtime modules that are included with the installation kit.  Sometimes those files can be corrupted - from other programs, power failures, disk failures, etc.  

You can download the runtime modules directly from Microsoft if you suspect there is an issue.
