Where can I download ID server VC++ shared runtime libraries? I am using Windows 2003 64bit.
Your system is 64Bit .
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005(or 2008) SP1 Redistributable Package (x64)
And you may see also this articlle to solve your starting failed problem !
If you chang the IDS system service to "Auto" , restarting windows system .
Don't try to start it by manual !
After login into system, yoou will found that the IDS service was started by itself! ( The first login may cost a little time. )
