I'm trying to install BDS Premium 2012 on a Windows 7 Professional system and keep getting this error message: "Install Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable (x86) Failed Installation aborted, Result=1603"  I've tried uninstalling existing copies of the C++ with no sucess.  Help!

Full error log is attached.

If uninstalling your Visual C++ Redistributable is not working, then install it manually from Microsoft and then modify your setup.ini to remove the prerequisite check for this.  The instance in the setup.ini is VCREDIST.
