include_msvcr doesn't bundle vcruntime140.dll when bdist_msi is run inside a virtualenv #275
I think this is an issue with virtualenv not copying vcruntime140.dll into the virtual environment. If this file is manually copied to the virtual environment then the build works fine for me.
I noticed when using venv instead of virtualenv, the corresponding virtual environment has vcruntime140.dll copied to it and I have no issues with the cx_Freeze build.
Here is a related bug report on the virtualenv issue tracker.
