I assume you mean @42, not @43?  Looking into 
with Orca, there /is/ a msvcr120.dll included in the File table.  It is 
not clear to me why that apparently does not get installed onto your 
machine or is not found by LO (and it is neither clear to me where it 
would be installed to, into the LO program directory or into some global 
Windows directory).  Maybe Timar knows more.

(Older dailies would likely not contain nor require msvcr120.dll, as 
that is the runtime corresponding to the MSVC 2013 compiler.  Older 
dailies had likely been built with the MSVC 2012 compiler, with 
corresponding runtime msvcr110.dll.)

I assume you mean msvcr80.dll, not msvc480.dll?  msvcr80.dll 
(corresponding to MSVC 2005, I think) is included in LO installation 
sets because LO's Mozilla address book driver needs it.  It is only 
included if the build has been configured --enable-win-mozab-driver. 
There appears to be no useful accounting for the daily builds, but I'd 
assume that the given 
libo-master~2014-12-04_22.57.23_LibreOfficeDev_4.5.0.0.alpha0_Win_x86.msi has 
been configured --disable-win-mozab-driver.  Thorsten should know more.
