New BBDS v188.8.131.52 requires MS Visual C++ 2008 SP1 Redistrubutable Pkg.
BUT in checking into this download from the Microsoft Download Center, I noted a MS message there stating "a security issue has been identified that could allow an attacker to compromise your Windows-based system with Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Service Pack 1 Redistributable package."
Don't think I will make this BBDS update, given this warning and possible risk. Think I will wait for the next BBDS version - and w/o this risk!!

I think you may have mis-interpreted the warning - the SP1 update was supposed to fix the vulnerability. However, even after downloading & installing the update, the BBdesktop software still stops with the same error message. If I were you, I'd check back in a few days to see if a BB tech has posted a fix.
I'm having the exact same problem - I even downloaded the update from Microsoft 3 times and I still get the error message. The last few updates of BBdesktop have been problematic for me - I had to skip the last one because the sync kept on crashing. My loyalty to the brand is beginning to falter....
