Visual C++ 2010 and 2015 redists won't both install

Hi All

I'm using InstallShield 2019 R3 Express Edition.

I have some software that depends on two different redists of Microsoft Visual C++.  It depends on both 2010 and 2015 and both need to be installed.  These aren't direct dependencies but rather have come via third party packages so I can't easily get around this.

When I include both redists in my installer package, only 2015 gets installed.  If I leave 2015 out of the package, 2010 is installed correctly.  My assumption is that the installer is assuming backwards compatibility and therefore considers 2010 is redundant if 2015 is included but this is just a guess.

Is there anything I can do to make sure both redists get installed?
