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.

I don't think that was the concern. The concern was the use of an older version that might have security problems. Can there be a way that the installer finds the LATEST version that will work with the installed files? I get irritated with multiple versions of the same software is installed on my machines.

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.
