With either version you always need to ensure the Microsoft C and C++
runtimes were present. Whether you need to ship them or not depends
on what is on the machine you are deploying them to.

If you need the Fb 2 international language support then you probably
do need to deploy the icu* libraries as you could be fairly certain
they would otherwise be missing. That's where the extra weight comes in...
