C++ Redistributable Help, vcredist.msi does not exist


For some reason, with the Bioshock demo, C&C3 Mod SDK it requires that I
have the latest C++ Redistributable from MS. Only problem is it will
never install and gives me the same message:
"The feature you are trying to use is on a network resource that is
unavailable. Clock OK to try again, or enter an alternate path to a
folder containing the installation package 'vcredist.msi' in the box
below."

Then it allows me to browse finding this vcredist.msi but it is nowhere
to be found. When I cancel the install it gives me an error saying,
"Error 1714. The older version of Microsoft Visual C++ 2005
Redistributable cannot be removed. Contact your technical support
group." So I came here. I have no idea what to do.

Also, I finally extracted the .msi and .cab files. I placed them on my
desktop for safe keeping. When I execute the C++_86.exe it gives the
same message and asks for the .msi. It is on my desktop, so I point the
browser to it and I get, "C:\Documents and
Settings\Andrew\Desktop\vcredist.msi is not a valid installation
package for the product MS C++ Redist. Try to find the installation
package 'vcredist.msi' in a folder from which you can install MS C++
Redist."
So, I copy and paste the .msi and .cab and put them in the default
folder where the vcredist.exe is located. I run the installer again
only this time the browser does not show the folder "Local Settings."
So I am unable to reach the .msi from the installation browser.

and also..found this here:
http://help.wugnet.com/vista/uninsta...pict73532.html

The user fixes this problem at the very end. Downloads Microsoft
Cleanup utility and all is well.

When I try this an error occurs: "Windows Script Host" Error: ActiveX
component can't create object: 'Scripting.FileSystemObject' Microsoft
VBSCript runtime error.

This thread was started over here at
http://forums.anandtech.com/messagev...&enterthread=y.

I have tried almost everything possible. Every time I try something
new the same errors keep occuring, both the VBScript and the C++
problem.

If anyone has a fix for this I would greatly appreciate it.

and yes I have googled everything, followed instructions from MS
Support Center etc etc...nothing has worked.

Re: C++ Redistributable Help, vcredist.msi does not exist

Hi ;

Try to rename the key-name
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\F942F94A19C0F 79468FD2B85E5E8677B

to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Products\-
F942F94A19C0F79468FD2B85E5E8677B

and then re-run the installer.

thnx.
