Hi Andras

Because it is not possible to query a newer version reliably.
Especially, detecting yet to be released newer versions seems to be
difficult to me. The MsiQueryProductState call can be used only if the
product code of the package is known.

I'm not a programmer but apparently you can check for File Version ( and
specify a range) using MSI

My opinion is that it is better to always install vcredist, because it
is the safest, and it makes no harm, if a newer version is installed
already. Maybe we should use the /QN switch instead of /QB so most
people would not notice it and would not complain about it. :)

I can see your point. I still think it's a waste of time and resources ;)

Actually, I think that installing ANY software (or updates) without user
knowledge (and consent)  is quite rude ;) In any case it will show up as
installed and advanced users do notice that :)
