    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:                                         *
    * ClearCase and ClearQuest installs the Microsoft VC++ 2008    *
    * run-time to support the IBM GSKit library. The Microsoft     *
    * VC++ 2008 run-time has gone out of support and needs to be   *
    * updated.                                                     *

Problem conclusion

  • The GSKit has been updated to version 8.0.55.9 which depends on
    the Microsoft VC++ 2013 run-time instead of the Microsoft VC++
    2008 run-time. With this update ClearCase and ClearQuest will no
    longer install the Microsoft VC++ 2008 run-time.
    A fix is available in ClearQuest 8.0.1.22 and 9.0.1.8.
