    Question Why is Qt 5.3.0 for MSVC 2013 shipped with the MSVC 2010 redist?

    I recently installed Qt 5.3.0 for MSVC 2013 with ANGLE. The MSVC redist shipped with it, however, is the 2010sp1 redist, not the 2013 redist. Why is this? Also, when deploying my application compiled against this version of Qt, should I include both the 2013 and 2010sp1 MSVC redists? Thanks in advance.

    Sorry for the double post, but the answer to my question can be found here: http://qt-project.org/forums/viewthread/43380

    tl;dr The version of Qt Creator shipped with all Windows builds of Qt 5.3.0 is built with MSVC 2010, thus the inclusion of the 2010sp1 redist. This redist has nothing to do with the installed Qt libraries.

    I'm replying here because I wasn't able to edit my OP. Could an admin please mark the thread as solved? Thanks.
