Maybe VC 8 and VC 9 but not VC 10 build apps.
For 2000 You'd need updates past the last update by MS just like JohnHell wrote.
I never actually "installed" any of those. Just find the relevant msvcrxxx.dll and (IIRC!) msvcpxxx.dll, then drop them into the .\windows folder, was it the \System32?
Over 2 years ago... The box developed Alzheimer's in 2012, the CPU I think, and I couldn't find a new one with W2K drivers, so...
But no actual "install". I was never interested in building apps, just running them. And I did have a drama when Rollup 1 got over-written with one app install, and a whole heap of other apps crashed! I was running a lot of apps which said they needed XP/Vista, and getting better mileage out of them!
I see where JohnHell is coming from. I don't think Km74 would have run on W2K at any stage no matter what VC updates you dropped in. Definitely a Kernel Extender would be needed.

Television is the first truly democratic culture -- the first culture available to everyone and entirely governed by what the people want. The most terrifying thing is what people do want. [Clive Barnes, 1969]
