|Title:||Installer fails to install VC++ Runtime|

The installer of the .NET 4 version (both bundle and no bundle) fails to install the VC++ Runtime. An error message pops up with following text: "Failed to install Microsoft Visual C++ Runtime: vcredist_x86_2010_SP1.exe, Asien".
I've already installed Visual Studio SP1 (10.0.40219.1 SP1Rel). In the registry key "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\VC\VCRedist\x86" I have version v10.0.40219.325. There's also a subkey, called "KB2565063", which means I have installed the patch from the MS11-025 update.
By the way, the 3.5 installer is working flawlessly.

As you can see the installer checks if the value of the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\10.0\VC\VCRedist\x86\Bld key equals to 40219. This is the case on my system, which means, I've already have a newer version installed.
Maybe you should check the return code of the redist installer in the setup? The code is 5100 on my system.

Unfortunately, checking the return code makes little difference. The error code 5100 is generic and can mean multiple things, I cannot assume it means "success".
Apparently, Microsoft is already aware of this issue and no fix is forthcoming:
