Are there methods in CapeSoft StringTheory that require MS C++ Redistributable

Are there methods in StringTheory that require MS C++ Runtimes be installed?

I was setting up a clarion-built application on a new Azure 2019 Data Center O/S and I had to install C++ Redistributable for NetTalk (or more likely for OpenSSL) to communicate over SSL . So, I am wondering if StringTheory has any methods in it that also rely on MS C++ Redistributable being installed.

Not that I know of, but depending on the functions that you use (such as compression), you might need to include a DLL.

As Jeff noted, the compression methods use gzip/gunzip and require you to distribute ZLIBWAPI.DLL. See “Distribution” in the StringTheory docs:
