Compatibility issues with the "Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1" dependency?

This is not strictly a Crystal question, but since this component is only needed due to Crystal's dependency on it, I hope that I can get some guidance here.

I thought I was ready to goto staging/production with my Crystal application. But I forgot to consider the concerns that the operations folks might have when I told them that my .NET application installation also required a new Microsoft common component to be deployed to our web farm.

Has anyone seen any compatibility issues after installing the "Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable Package"? Our techs are concerned about the possibility of other applications in the web farm failing after the installation.

If no issues expected, can anyone give advice on how to get the ops folks to a better comfort level that my application's dependency is not going to cause them headaches? I have some ideas, but more advice/assurance is always helpful.

Thank you for any help!
