no it's because that file was part of windows when VB6 was a thing so it didn't need to be packaged,  it's not needed/used in 64 bit versions of windows, so needs to be added.

Me too, heading to Worldcon on the 12th (11th US time) though that won't affect the board in any way ;) except possibly reducing the signal to noise.

Thats correct.  Also, there wont be a database as of next version (unless he does save files via a database, which would be unusual).

Yes, but only very slowly.  Fill the ship with nitrogen, which keeps things from oxidizing and kills off almost any potential life which could cause problems.  No humidity and no oxygen means things last a very long time indeed.  We're talking years to decades with very little upkeep.
His question was 'why would the interior systems degrade', not 'why wouldn't the outside'.

why not just open them to vacuum?
