You can download this package from the Microsoft Download Center. Just enter “Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistributable Package (x86) ” into your search engine. In most cases the first entry of your search result will direct you to the appropriate Microsoft site. It is mandatory to install this package before the S7A setup.exe is executed.
