Yes, it's OK. But some installations of Windows are missing the (needed)
Microsoft C and C++ runtimes (msvcrt.dll and msvcp60.dll), which must be
present for the client to work. There are copies of these in the server
installation's bin directory...that should work with most Win
editions...but you can't know for certain. It's usually better to download
the relevant library pack from the MSN site.
