InstallShield 2018 problems with installation of redistributables

InstallShield 2018 is having problems installing redistributables for VS 2017 x64 and x86 . Can reproduce this problem on several machines, including clean (only system updates) Windows VM's (7, 8, 10, 2012 R2, 2016, 2019).

Re: InstallShield 2018 problems with installation of redistributables

Hi @benjamin_mahr ,

I have seen issues with the C++ 2017 Redistributable and noticed that this may be due to a version number conflict in the registry.

For a possible fix/solution to this, I would recommend taking a look at the following Knowledge Base article:

Regards,
Daniel.

So basically you're saying it's a Microsoft error? Its even happening for fresh Windows installations. Can't tell our customers to fix their registry because of this. That's a very unsatisfying situation.

The article suggests that you use the latest Microsoft EXE file, and also alter the condition which is being used - try this:
