I don't think that was the concern. The concern was the use of an older

No it's not, Jesus.
It is installing a previous version with security issues when a newer fixed
version is already installed.
It should never install if a newer is already installed.
The versions are not overridden, they are installed in parallel.
If you go to your C:\windows\winsxs folder, you'll find many different
versions of the Visual C++ libraries.
Obviously, if the version "preferred" by the installer is the only
version that the installed files will work with
is the only choice, then well, OK. But if it's compatible with the
latest version, maybe there is a way to make
sure that the latest version available is installed (that is compatible)
rather than whatever it was built with....
but I am ignorant as to if this is feasible or not....or if testing is
available to make sure that this works.
