Prior versions of SBM require the MS Visual C++ 2010 SP1 redistributable.  We have corrected this in SBM 12 which includes new FIPS-compliant software.
However, we have released SBM 11.7.1 Hotfix 6 that no longer requires the older 2010 redistributable for those that are unable to upgrade at this time.  Do note that due to the rules of FIPS compliance, this hotfix cannot be consider FIPS-compliant.
See the resolution for install SBM 11.7.1 without the C++ 2010 redistributable.
