    DLL corruption during VMWare Tools install (msvcp71.dll)

    StJoes Novice


      We recently upgraded our ESX server to vSphere 4.0.  After bringing the vm's back online, and then upgrading the Tools, we had issues with several applications working.  Troubleshooting seems to have revealed that during the Tools installation a new version of msvcp71.dll is used, and any existing version is (apparently) removed from the system32 directory.  We found three copies of the dll in various directories under Windows\temp all in directories used during the VMWare Tools install. 



      By copying the file back into the system32 directory, the application (MS SQL was the main application with issues) now works correctly.
