Description

If I install a package build with KB2467175's vcredist it works fine; if I then install an older package (built with the previous redist) then the newer (KB2467175) redist is uninstalled automatically (the "older" redistributable package has a higher version number (8.0.59193)than the "newer" one (8.0.51011), and it is configured to automatically uninstall previous version numbers). Therefore the new package's programs fail with a side by side configuration error.
