I'm not 100% sure about this so don't quote me but I think it installs certain libraries that a lot of programs use and it's pretty likely that you would have already had it installed unless you are working with a fresh OS.
Does Ubot require Microsoft C++ redistributable to run? Then I'm assuming any compiled bots would also require it...
I don't have the Developer Edition of Ubot - all these additional files are also required for compiled bots that go out to others if I DID have the developer edition?
Thanks everyone for helping me out on this.
