I recently installed visual studio and stumbled upon something i dont really understand.
Basically i discovered that under MSVC/Version/
It has what looks like the standard library headers, libs, and dll's
(it has libs like: vcruntime.lib and vcruntime140.dll as well as what looks like the source code for them)
But if the standard library dll's came with visual studio then how was other application that depends on the CRT working before i installed it?
Furthermore i created a project in visual studio and went to the "properties" tab and checked the command line arguments and i discovered that it doesn't even link against the crt ? only:
