    I was trying to install a trial application today. During the installation I got an error message that said it couldn't locate "vc_red.msi" and was trying to look for it in the directory "c:\0c3cbe011cf829fa347582798c\" I couldn't locate that folder either.

    So, I downloaded the x64 Visual C++ 2008 installer from the MS site. I tried to run the installer, but that also gave me an error message that it couldn't locate "vc_red.msi" in yet another folder with a very long name. This time, it was looking for the folder/file on an external drive.

    I have no idea what's going on. Can anyone please help?
