installation of microsoft visual c++ 2005 sp1 redistributable appears to have failed

We met a problem:
The installation of microsoft visual c++ 2005 sp1 redistributable package (x86) appears to have failed....

Background:
1) Old machine, WinXP + InstallShield 2012Spring
2) Currently we did upgrade: New machine, Win7 + InstallShield 2013.
3) We have an installer project in old machine, and In Redistributables, the "Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable package (x86)" was checked.
4) Copied the installer project from old machine to new machine. Nothing change, just upgrade to 2013.

Test steps:
1) Make our installer in new machine. try to install it in a refresh PC.
2) The installer prompt a dialog, let you to install the "Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable package".
3) Click install, but the error message will be displayed.
But, in fact, it is installed okay, see screen shot below.


Above is the first problem.

The second one is:
1) Re-test. Install it from [ISSetupPrequisites] (vcredist_x86.exe), it will be installed successfully.
2) Then double click our installer.
3) It will popup say you need to install [Visual C++ 2005 SP1 Redistributable package]. But I already installed it in Step1 from [ISSetupPrequisites].

This the second problem.

If make installer in old machine. The 2 problems are not exists. It will works okay.
