Dolphin Cad Cam Systems Ltd - 3rd Party Redistributable Requirements

Within this context 'redistributable' files are 3rd party files (usually .dll / .exe from Microsoft) which are prerequisite before a specific application will execute. In most cases these prerequisite files are already present on a PC as part of a different application and in this case no user action is required, alternatively where these prerequisite files do not exist then they must be installed prior to running the target application.
