Hot to launch vcredist_x86.exe in the setup program.

Hi,
I'm using in InstallShield 2008 Premier Edition.
After upgrading to the Visual Studio 2005 SP1,
the application fails to launch when installed by setup program built from InstallShield 2008 Premier Edition.

So, I dicided to add a custom action to launch 'Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable(vcredist_x86.exe)' before installing the application.

I want to install the vcredist_x86.exe only just once, that is if already installed in target machine the setup program should not launch vcredist_x86.exe any more.

Are there anyone who knows how to solve the above problems?

Why custom action ?

You can use the redistributable Merge Module include in the Installshield

Redistributable --> merge Module

Visual C++ 9.0 CRT
Visual C++ 9.0 MFC
Visual C++ 9.0 ATL

It OK ??

I want to launch it as a part of custom action and not as a preq. Please advise
